Thanks to everyone who participated in the “Unconditional Surrender” Sculpture Look-Alike Promotion at the Valentine’s Day Gallery Walk!

On the night of the Gallery Walk, couples were invited to imitate the famed V-J Day image of a sailor kissing a nurse by posing next to the J. Seward Johnson sculpture.

Special Guest Artist - Photographer Jeff Danielson
Works located at 111 W. Main Street, Suite 130 (formerly Lucky Lou Boutique)

Brown County artists are known for their landscape interpretations. Photographers of Brown County are known chiefly for recording the quaintness of the area - the character of the buildings and the people. Jeff Danielson is on a different trail. Literally. He hikes the more remote parts of the area and brings out the natural beauty in his
photographs. He then prints them himself on both canvas and photo papers.

To complete this manifestation of the natural world in the most fitting manner possible, Jeff's photographs are framed by Joe Rudyanski.

Joe has cut the wood from his own farm, aged it for 20 years at his home, and then made stunning frames. He uses any and all local hardwoods. For Jeff's photographs he uses a lot of cherry and walnut. His barnwood frames complete the theme - the barnwood is from his own 90 year old barn.
