LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) — A new market for local artists has opened in downtown La Crosse.

The Downtown Art Market at 321 Main St. is open Wednesdays through Sundays.

It is a cooperative art market aiming to help establish emerging artists in our area.

It features pottery, jewelry, paintings and various forms of work from more than 30 local artists.

“I think right now the community is really supporting local. Local products, local artists, local businesses both food and restaurants, and also the retail shopping stores. So… we’re really happy to be giving an opportunity for local artists to be supported,” said Robin Moses of the Downtown Art Market.

One artist had an exhibit meant to connect everyone.

The exhibit called “Pandemic Rx” is a collection of story boxes filled with everyday items that can be used to cope with the stresses of the pandemic.

The displays represent different themes that can be calming to everyone.

“It’s fun, it’s a fun thing to do. Soothing. Especially in this time, when we’re looking for things that are creative or that make us feel at ease,” said Kathy Fitchuk, who created the Pandemic Rx exhibit.
