Over a dozen artists from across the U.S. are currently participating in the Voices from the Warehouse District exhibit in the Historic Millwork District of Dubuque. Evan (Stickfort) Ventris, who grew up in rural Garnavillo and attended both Garnavillo and Clayton Ridge High Schools, is one of the show’s featured artists.
“There is a wide variety of art on display, ranging from sculpture to paintings to site-specific installation. There are artists from around the country exhibiting their work, and a great deal of effort is put into making Voices successful each year. If you are a fan of art in general, it’s worth a visit,” says Ventris.
Voices is a month-long art exhibit and cultural event located in a cavernous 15,000 square foot gallery space. Voices began in 2005 as a way for the artists’ voices to be heard, and quickly gathered support from the Dubuque community.
