The 2008 Wisconsin Arts Board Visual Arts Fellows were Jennifer Angus, Beth Lipman, Steven Lubahn, Charles Munch, Jim Rose, Natalie Settles, and Fred Stonehouse.
Angus and Hitchcock collaborated on this exploration of the beauties and perils inherent in our relationship with the natural world.
Huggett and Hutchison both work by playing color against shape. Huggett applies oil paint to canvas stretched over embroidery hoops and cutout geomentric wood shapes.
Feren's glass sculptures depict intricate landscapes of stark trees and scenes of human industry.
Arntson and Severson are keen observers of water in the landscape.
Laura Dronzek's intimate, lushly painted imaginary landscapes often depict solitary trees, water, and animals, in an eerie, disquieting way.
Laurel Lueders uses photography, projections, and video combined with handmade printed textiles and other materials to create virtual environments.
Painters Kay Knight and Gina Litherland use the human figure and narrative in their work in very different ways.
Annie Mae McClain's hat collection was notable even in a community that regarded wearing hats to church as the fashion statement of the week.
