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.
February’s cover art, titled “Winter Morning Trees,” was composed in watercolor and pastel by Nancy Cox, who lives and works in the countryside between Black Earth and Mount Horeb. Nancy says of her painting: “One winter morning I was struck by the beautiful graphic quality of our oak trees and bare branches. I set up my easel in front of the window, which framed this composition.” Thanks to Nancy for contributing to our cover! For more of Nancy’s work and contact information regarding art purchases or commissioned work, see www.nancycoxartwork.com. You can also participate in an art workshop with Nancy on March 26 at Schmitt Woodland Hills Retirement Center in Richland Center as part of the Wisconsin Regional Arts Program. The cost is $5.
