Back Roads of Wisconsin​ Hugh Mandelert Art Society Exhibit

To quote Hugh Mandelert, “Here we are in the middle of all this beauty in Wisconsin,” so it is understandable that he encouraged the artists who studied with him and currently make up the Hugh Mandelert Art Society to paint what surrounds them. This resulted in various road trips with Hugh, searching for reference material.
