Washburn artist Jamey Penney-Ritter said she ‘likes to say this is the largest collection of Northern Wisconsin travel posters in the history of the world’, referring to her work at Bemused Gallery & Studio.

The UWS grad started designing and selling the hyperlocal posters eight years ago, and their popularity continues to grow. Visitors to Duluth International Airport can view an exhibit featuring 32 of his prints.

She has designed more than 160 posters, from local favorites like the Skylift and Madeline Island Ferry to niche sites like the Gordon Fire Tower.
