Art Night

Last Wednesday of the month (September-November 2022 and January-April 2023)
6:30 – 8:00 pm

FREE admission – Spencer's Community Room, 105 Park Street, Spencer

While enjoying a live performance can be fulfilling, there's something to be said for the act of being personally creative. Join Spencer School's art educator, Carmen Schweiger, for a variety of artistic projects – a different one each month – that offers the opportunity to try your hand at all sorts of unique experiences. Expect to see a few guest instructors, as well. In this adult-only setting, all materials will be supplied, and the low-key, non-judgmental atmosphere is perfect for the leisurely pursuit of creative expression. There's no charge to attend and no need to sign-up. Check the Tack's Facebook for the project schedule, call 715-659-4499 with questions or email

Author Visit with Jim Guhl

Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at 6:30 pm

FREE admission – Bring cash or canned goods to benefit King's Food Pantry

Retired from a career in engineering, Hudson author Jim Guhl usually starts his day with a laptop, a notebook, pen, and a large coffee. His first novel, the award-winning Eleven Miles to Oshkosh was published in 2018 and is a coming-of-age story about a scrawny kid who struggles to get by in the Fox Valley Region of Wisconsin in the 1970s. There's a mystery inside the main plot as the 15-year-old protagonist tries to figure out who murdered his father. South of Luck, released in 2021, tells the tale of a 16-year-old ruffian whose mother sends him from Minneapolis to rural Polk County, Wisconsin. She claims that it'll do him good to be out in nature, but they both know it's an attempt to keep him safe from his brutal stepfather. Jim will discuss his books and share his experiences as a writer, probably with a large coffee at his side. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
