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.
May’s cover image by landscape and travel photographer Stephen Gassman is “Spring Ripples,” which was taken in the spring of 2014 on a small stream in Grant County. Stephen, who lives in rural Platteville and is teaching an outdoor photography workshop May 2 at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, says of his image, “I enjoy looking for spring photographs in a gentle spring shower. The water drops sending concentric ripples reflected the new spring foliage in the small stream in Harrison Township.” Thanks to Stephen for his contribution to our cover!
