‘Within the Driftless’ was a collaborative art showing featuring the paintings of Kathy Hofmann and my photography. My role in this project was as a sort of “producer” in that I helped facilitate this exhibit. For a number of months I would escort the painter on local sojourns into the surrounding countryside in order to study the landscape and natural lighting. Documenting the project with photography was only part of my role. I also directed and installed the show, hanging each piece, label and lighting fixture. I also designed and created the various graphics used in advertising the show.

It hung in the main gallery of the Driftless Historium from early February until the show was closed by the Covid-19 pandemic when the museum shut its doors to the public.
