“Alone” (2019) by Andrew Ritchie

Andrew Ritchie is an artist and long time EC local. He resides in Putnam Heights sharing little pink digs with Jean, his wife, and Andy, a wiener dog.

“The piece Alone is one of several new works I completed for the Volume One Gallery exhibit 'Somewhere Else.' The show is hanging until Oct. 25. One element I tried to include in these works was the importance of location in storytelling. With Alone, I hoped the vastness of deep space juxtaposed with the lone figure tells the story.” –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.
