ITBEC-SW - The International Trade, Business and Economic Development Council provides participating counties in southwest Wisconsin with a mechanism to identify and formulate regional goals and strategies leading to improvements in tourism, economic development and exporting.

If you have ever visited a dairy farm, met an Emu, tasted a squeaky-fresh cheese curd still warm from the vat, got lost in a corn maze, or picked your own strawberries under the same summer sun that sweetened them then you've been involved in ag-tourism! With Agriculture and Tourism among the top revenue generators in Wisconsin, combining the two into "Ag-Tourism" makes good business sense and offers unlimited potential for growth.

Opening reception will feature the work of watercolorist and musician Doc Roddy. Doc was born on Kennesaw Mountain and grew up in northern Georgia, in a place where art was not a part of the cultural landscape. Nevertheless, he began to draw and paint at an early age and went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Georgia and his MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts (now California College of the Arts). Doc lived in the Bay area from 1971 through 1978, and his first major exhibition was at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1971. He then moved to New York City, and in 1980 he was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.

Doc remained in New York until 1990, then stopped painting for a decade while he and his wife Terre traveled around and played music. In 2003 Doc and Terre moved to the Driftless area and renovated a shack on their land into a painting studio. Doc (known as Mike in the art world) has exhibited widely, including exhibits at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the University of California Art Museum at Berkely, the New Museum in New York City, Musee d'Art Contemporain in Lyon, France, and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions. For more information call 608.637.6918. Dinner to follow - 7 PM @ The Rooted Spoon. Email rootedspoon@gmail.com or call 608-632-2120 to make reservations.
