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 by Amelia Mitchell, a junior at Mineral Point High School and the daughter of John and Kristin Mitchell, is an oil painting on 30-inch x 33-inch canvas titled “Bear.” Amelia, who painted “Bear” for an art class last year, was awarded Best in Show at the 2016 Regional High School Art Show at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Harry and Laura Nohr Gallery in December. Her work now moves on to the Wisconsin Regional Artists Association state competition to be held at Wausau’s Center for Visual Art in September. Congratulations to Amelia on her award, and thanks for her contribution to our cover!
