JANESVILLE — Raven’s Wish Gallery is featuring a shared art exhibition by Dava Dahlgran (colored pencil) and Gail Pratt (manipulated photography), both of Janesville.

“An artist for more than 50 years, Dahlgran’s chosen medium is colored pencil which she uses to create life-like images and to tell stories,” according to a news release from the downtown Janesville gallery. “Pratt is a Williams Bay native whose poignant, manipulated photographs have a haunting, painterly quality.”

The exhibition is a year-long culmination of images depicting hats and shoes, and the stories told behind the scenes.

“Personal items such as hats and shoes tell intimate — but universal — stories. Everyone seems to relate to them,” Dahlgran said in the release.

The free exhibition will hang through Jan. 5 at the gallery, 101 W. Milwaukee St.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
