The State of Wisconsin proclaimed 2013 as the 75th anniversary of the Wisconsin Great River Road. Highway 35, Wisconsin’s Great River Road, runs down Wisconsin's west coast winding through artistic communities and charming historic villages. The journey is one of the greatest undiscovered drives in the Midwest.
The road with its curves and hills has been preserved to embrace the area’s scenic and historical significance. Drivers on the Great River Road find a sense of freedom and a unique connection to the wild landscape. Along the road, eagles soar in and out of the trees, and limestone bluffs tower above the road like European castles. The Mighty Mississippi River stretches and winds with you like a friend on your drive, leaving you in awe of its necessity and natural beauty. New journeyer’s are encouraged and invited to discover the magic.
Abode Gallery will highlight the works of artist Raelee Edgar in an exhibition entitled "The Great River Road". Raelee is happily painting car memories, in Minnesota where she lives with her husband and two children. In recent years, her work has been exhibited in a number of juried shows and she's completed several commissions. Her artwork is held in both private and corporate collections. When speaking about her work she states, “Time spent with loved ones and friends can be summoned by a car make or model. I hope my work lets people savor those memories.”
Ronalee’s work will be on view from June 15th- July 31st. The opening for the Great River Road Exhibition will be June 15th from 4:30pm- 6:30pm. See you at the Opening!
