Many, many thanks to all of you who took the time to vote for us in the Shepherd Express's annual poll of Milwaukee's Best! We feel very thrilled to be named Milwaukee's best art gallery of 2009.
We all know that the competition in the gallery category must have been tough as there are many amazing people here in town, including many of our dear friends, working extremely hard to both embrace Milwaukee's wonderful artists and bring in the fresh talent from elsewhere. Hence, we are even more honored to be awarded this title.

We are very grateful to everybody who contributed to our success: our supporters, unbelievable members, all the volunteers and interns, our Board and all the funders who back up their faith in us with their monetary funds. We couldn't have done it without you - it's been a truly team effort.
But above all, many thanks to artists who worked with us to make the gallery events true success. Starting with the most recent, we have to acknowledge Rosa Zamora, who carefully curated the current Day of the Dead Exhibition, an amazing group who under auspices of Terry Daulton and Dolly Ledin put together Paradise Lost, truly wonderful Jennifer Harris and Regan Golden (we are sending big thanks to Regan in Houston, TX), MARN mentors and mentees, Gabriel Villa and Rene Hugo Arceo and all the good folks of Pilsen, Richard Knight, members of the Southeastern Chapter of Wisconsin Visual Artists, and - above all - our artist members who stand by us through thick and thin. THANK YOU!
