WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- Birds in Art is out, and it's time for a pair of new exhibitions to move at at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau.

The two new shows are Huchthausen: A Glass Retrospective and Transformation 8: Contemporary Works in Small Metals.

Woodson director Kathy Foley says Transformation 8: Contemporary Works in Small Metal is all about an exploration of the ways small sculptures are created. "Among the interesting elements in this exhibition, is the connections to what inspired the artists to create their work, what that inspiration was." The show is a display of the 2011 edition of the Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize series, which recognizes excellence in the field of contemporary craft.

Foley says Huchthausen: A Glass Retrospective takes a look at the history of American artwork through the works of Wisconsin-native David Huchthausen. "These exhibitions documented the evolution of American studio glass from its early emphasis on blown forms, to the explosion of sculptural forms."

Both exhibits open this Saturday at the always free Woodson Art Museum.
