JoAnna Poehlmann and Lee Weiss

Saturday, September 8, 2012 - 1:00pm to 1:45pm

As women artists who came of age in the 1950s and '60s, both JoAnna Poehlmann and Lee Weiss persevered against great odds to achieve recognition and success. Having devoted themselves to naturalistic drawing and watercolor landscapes, they have also had to withstand the art world's bias in favor of more abstract and conceptual art. In the face of these challenges, Weiss and Poehlmann have remained quietly, determinedly focused on their work in the studio.

Weiss and Poehlmann are both Fellows of the Wisconsin Academy. Sharing our Fellows' achievements and contributions as widely as possible is an essential part of the Academy's mission to "connect people and ideas for a better Wisconsin."
