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 art, “Flowers of Seoul,” is a large-scale colored pencil drawing by Zoe Linn Jarvis, a Middleton artist whose show “Gardens of Light” is on view at Mineral Point’s Wantoot gallery. Zoe, a Korean-adoptee raised in the United States, says: “Nature is a source of solace and a reminder of individual strength. My drawings present nature in the form of abundant flower blooms, rendered exclusively in Prismacolor colored pencils and spread across large sheets of paper. Each drawing depicts only one kind of flower. The flowers are repeated in varying sizes and from differing vantage points until the myriad flowers begin to exist together.” Meet Zoe at a reception 5-8 p.m. Aug. 6, Mineral Point’s next Gallery Night. Thanks to Zoe and Wantoot for contributing to our cover! To enjoy more of Zoe’s art, see www.wantoot.com.
