25 Local Artists You Should Know

Raven's Wish Gallery/Studio in Janesville has carried my work for several years, and this month I have a piece in the current show, 25 Local Artists You Should Know, which runs through the end of December.

Owner Alicia Reid had a reception, part of downtown Janesville's Meander on Milwaukee promotion on Friday evening.  Most of the artists were there to meet and greet and say a few words about their work, and she had cookies and wine available to tide us over until supper.  Some people stopped in to make paper snowflakes that later were used to decorate Val Saxer's studio window on Main Street. 

These photos show most of the artwork, though I missed a couple that were on free standing walls.  Apparently a couple hundred people stopped in Friday night, though I did not see any little red "sold" dots on the pieces the next day.  Perhaps shoppers will think it over and then return to make some of the featured local artists very happy.  I hope so.
