Standing Stones: Ritual Sites in Western Britain
An exhibit of stunning black-and-white photographs by photographer Sylvia Horwitz and vibrant oil paintings by artist Peter Truran invites visitors to experience intimate contact with sacred ritual places constructed in western Britain more than 5,000 years ago. "Standing Stones: Ritual Sites in Western Britain," a new fine-art exhibition is on display at Pendarvis through the remainder of the season. A reception and artists talk on Friday, June 1, from 7–9 pm is free and open to the public. Sunday, June 3, will be Visitor Appreciation Day

: Nestled on a rocky, wooded hillside, Pendarvis comprises six historic stone and stone-and-log cottages built by immigrant Cornish miners in the 1830s and '40s during the Wisconsin Territory's lead-mining boom. Nearby Merry Christmas Mine Hill still bears the signs of early mining activity, and a 43-acre restored prairie reveals the unspoiled wilderness found by the first arriving settlers.
