‘Bright, Midsummer High’ by Hleeda Lor, Taylor McCumber, & Ma Vue

From the artists: “When our staff brainstormed this issue’s special Best of Summer photo cover, we wanted to create something eye-catching.  Something so bright – so summery – you’ll need sunscreen to read the issue. We chose monochromatic colors that were unequivocally summer and went with a contemporary still-life photography aesthetic that demanded attention. We picked and customized products reminiscent of our summers here in the Chippewa Valley and strategically placed them to obtain a mesmerizing spread. Add in harsh lighting to emulate the high summer sun and we had ourselves a winning summer cover! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it!”

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.
