100 Artists Living in the Midwest

Greeting All, Here is the description of a new book that will be coming out later mid-year and SAQA IL/WI members Clairan Ferrono and Trish Williams are two of the 100. "This expansive book takes a fresh look at 100 living artists from the Midwest, their personal stories and inspirations, along with several examples of their works. A wealth of urban settings, wide plains, flourishing cities, rushing rivers, and placid lakes are source material and inspiration for the artists. These works show how each artist interprets life. They explore the richness of the homegrown imagery of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin – their culture, society, and environment. They are delineating our stories for future generations in oil, pastels, sculpture, and other media. Their works are displayed in over 600 full color images. This book is essential for all who appreciate or practice art today".

This book will be available by May 2010 and you can check Schiffer Books website for more info.
