The Arts Come Marching One by One

Spring came in with two new WSW fellows and one resident. They’re as sweet as lambs, but they power through their work like lionesses. Check out what they’re doing in studio:

Deanna Witman hails from Rockland, Maine. Her work is an ethereal marriage between art and the environment. She has taken on the gargantuan task of making paper, coating it with photo emulsion, and printing thereupon. She’s trying to complete all of this in just four weeks. You can see a visual journal of her WSW experience on her blog, space-time-being.

Kristin Carlson’s residency is flooded by time in the silkscreen studio. She teaches printing to fifth graders twice a week through our Art-in-Education program. She bases much of her work on correspondence with friends and family. Spend time with her prints and you feel like maybe art can shorten the distance between you and the people you love. You can bridge the distance by visiting her online portfolio.

Laura Brown will be residing at WSW the longest as she executes an artist’s book and teaches etching to the Art-in-Ed students. She’s from Minnesota, and her work often features Midwestern landscapes.  Laura utilizes blocks of bold color that evoke meaning and memory in their simplicity. She, too, is blogging about her time at WSW. Laura’s work is on display in the gallery at WSW and will be for the next month (you can even touch the book!).
