Welcome to Voice of the River Valley
Voice is an arts and culture magazine published and distributed in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin. Voice is focused on the individuals, events, organizations, businesses and communities of the Lower Wisconsin and Sugar-Pecatonica River Basins — including Arena, Avoca, Dodgeville, Lone Rock, Mineral Point, Mazomanie, Muscoda, Plain, Prairie du Sac, Richland Center, Sauk City and Spring Green. Each month up to 3,500 copies of Voice are distributed at more than 160 fine galleries, shops, cafes, restaurants and libraries in 21 cities, towns and villages across the region.
August’s cover image, “Gone Fishing,” was painted by Nick Ringelstetter, an award-winning graphic artist from Spring Green. Nick says of his imaginative creation: “This piece is actually inspired by the river bottoms in the River Valley area. I love to fish and it’s my way to relax. So I thought it would be a fun piece to show some of the things I think about when I’m fishing. This is one of my all-time most popular pieces, so I’m guessing that many others can relate to this painting.” Thanks to Nick for his contribution to our cover! To view more of Nick’s art, see his Atomic7 Studio on Facebook. To share art or photography for a future cover of Voice, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
