Gold Forest” by Jo Burke 
Acrylic, 12” x 24”

Jo Burke is a local artist, teacher, and activist, and one of the owners of 200 Main Gallery and Studios in downtown Eau Claire. She believes that eARTh, without ART is just … eh.

“‘Gold Forest’ came from a view at dusk from some trees on our land, as they were lit from the top by the sunset. The mixture of sunlight and nature always brings a new and inspiring take on the world.” – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a message.
