THE STORY BEHIND ARTDOSE ART GUIDE
In 2006, I visited one of my best friends, Randall Baren, in Virginia. One of our common interests is visiting art galleries and art museums. On a sunny afternoon, we found ourselves in downtown Richmond and I stumbled upon a magazine, which featured art galleries, artists, restaurants, boutiques, etc. During this time I was Co-owner of a contemporary art gallery, Barrow + Juarez, in the Third Ward in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. What I loved about this particular magazine was that as a visitor I had some guidance as to where to go to see art.
Since my move to Sheboygan in 2004, I have witnessed the local art scene grow. Today, it is a thriving arts community with art groups, traditional and non-traditional gallery exhibition spaces, artist studios, and businesses that support the Visual Arts such as Two Fish Gallery, Z Spot, Paradigm Music + Coffee, Glas, Sheboygan Visual Artists, Frank Juarez Gallery, Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts, Plymouth Arts Center, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Seranya Art Boutique and Studio; to name a few.
In 2013 I decided to launch my very own art publication called Artdose Art Guide. This art guide was launched by the Frank Juarez Gallery as a way to continue exposing, educating and engaging the community about the Visual Arts in the North East region of Wisconsin. This art guide has developed as a premier quarterly art publication featuring exhibitions, events, screenings, workshops, etc taking place at galleries, art groups, institutions, arts centers, businesses, and artist studios throughout North Eastern Wisconsin.
Today, the Artdose Art Guide is gradually increasing interest throughout Wisconsin.
