The Aitkin County Private Woodlands Committee Winter Tour is Saturday December 7th from 8-4:30 at the McGregor Community Center.  The tour is called “Taking A New Look At My Land”.  This day of learning helps us to understand how our private lands are part of a complex landscape, connected to the world.  For instance:

The Ripple River Gallery in Aitkin, MN is a destination gallery tucked in the woods that has those who discover it returning again and again.  Bob Carls and Amy Sharpe opened their gallery with only a few featured artists, including themselves.  Today they sell work from more than 60 artists.  In this segment of Area Voices, they share how it happened and what life is like running a gallery.
