Olsonography opened in 2002, in Cambridge, Wisconsin, to show and sell my traditional black and white photography. At the time, Cambridge was an artsy community, especially known for its artisan potters, including but not limited to Mark Skudlarek's Cambridge Wood-fired Pottery. An extended duration of road reconstruction slowed Cambridge's vitality to a stand-still, and so I moved the gallery to Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, where I joined forces with Susan Danielson's Main Street Framing. It was there that the gallery theme expanded to introduce other local and regional artists. The name changed to Mark Olson Fine Art, and we enjoyed hosting quarterly art shows in the evenings. The great economic recession that followed 2008 eventually brought the gallery to a close, but the art lives on!
