fall art tour

A fall tradition for me is the fall art tour; a jaunt around the lovely southwestern Wisconsin counrtyside, during the spectacular fall colors to visit area artists studios and small town galleries in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. My friend Carole and I found plenty to be inspired by; both in the artists we talked to and the works they so obviously put their hearts and souls into. This year we did the portion around Mineral Point, a town so picturesque in itself that we could have spent the whole day right there. Our friend Mark Herrling, who is one of the artists in our VIVA Gallery Cooperative, was a guest artist with his potter friend Frank Polizzi. He is a woodblock printer, engraver and does some incredible art tiles. Another of my favorite artists is Audrey Christie of Short Horse Woodcuts. Her work resonates with just the right touch of whimsy and color. All in all a good day to store up some color and warmth and friendship to help shorten the winter days ahead.
