As I was driving home from school today I realized that Artdose Art Guide will be turning 5 in 2017. I never imagined that this art publication would be seeing 5 years.
What started as an idea in Sheboygan to promote the visual arts in my community has slowly grew to include other art venues, arts centers, art studios, galleries, etc from Algoma, Cedarburg, Elkhart Lake, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Plymouth, and Sheboygan. There are a lot of fabulous art happenings in our state. The Artdose Art Guide is just one vehicle to share and promote it. I am so thankful to be working alongside James May Gallery, Cedarburg Artists Guild, Cedarburg Art Museum, The Pink Llama, Two Fish Gallery, Gallery & Frame Shop, Langdon Divers Community Gallery, Macy Place, Riverwalk Art Center, Global Arts Gallery, Material Studios & Gallery, Plymouth Arts Center, Seranya Studios Art Boutique, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Knaak + Juarez Studio, Lakeshore Art Supplies, and the Sheboygan Visual Artists to continue to build art community in Wisconsin.
I have had the honor of working with Pat Ryan, Dale Van Minsel, Dale Knaak, and Erika Block over the past three years to make this publication become reality. Most recent with Sally Carson who is currently designing the Artdose Art Guide.
In addition, I would like to thank the following people for their continued support over the years – Tammie Strause (The Pink Llama), Pat & Karen Robison (Two Fish Gallery), Julie Balson (Gallery & Frame Shop), Mel Kolstad (Mel Kolstad Fine Art), Kathryn Dreifuerst (Riverwalk Art Center), Robert Jagemann (Global Arts Gallery), Susan Radke (Seranya Studios Art Boutique), Cindy Seibold-Hoeper (Lakeshore Art Supplies), and Peg Haubert (Sheboygan Visual Artists).

We have featured the works by Pat Ryan (Sheboygan Falls), Paula Swaydan Grebel (Plymouth), the late George Vihos (Sheboygan), Tom Uebelherr (Sheboygan), Dale Knaak (Sheboygan), Mel Kolstad (Fond du Lac), Jeanne Kuhns (Egg Harbor), Cooper Diers (Sheboygan), Amy Jarvis (Fond du Lac), Daniel Rathbun (Cleveland), Rob Neilson (Appleton), Tom Rauwerdink (Sheboygan), Lois Bielefeld (Milwaukee), Ray Easley (Fall Rivers), Laura Weber (Cedarburg), and Kendra Bulgrin (Algoma).
