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.
June’s cover art by Appleton artist Leonard Nagler is titled “Wisconsin Field” and is among his pieces on display at the Jura Silverman Gallery, 143 S. Washington, Spring Green. Jura Silverman says of the artist’s work: “Leonard paints in oil on canvas and board and a large part of his subject matter focuses on Wisconsin’s rural terrain, especially the areas in the Driftless Area where the contours of the land, the hills and valleys, create magnificent color and line patterns. He captures the landscape in an expressionistic style that captures the beauty around us.” Leonard is also among the artists exhibiting during the 48th annual Spring Green Arts & Crafts Fair June 24-25. Thanks to Leonard and Jura for their contribution to our cover!
