Lay of the Land

Lay of the Land

The second weekend in July is a very good time to be an arts lover in Madison.

It’s when the Capitol Square and Martin Luther King Boulevard become filled with art from all over the region, state and country, thanks to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s Art Fair on the Square and the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople’s Art Fair off the Square.

I enjoyed browsing the artists’ tents at both events this past weekend, and seeing a fantastically eclectic array of paintings, prints, photography, glass art, ceramics, jewelry and more. But I was especially taken with the landscapes, which ranged in medium as well as style and tone.


Here are works by just a few of the artists from Art Fair on the Square that caught my attention.


Tuscan Sunset, oil on panel, by Steven Kozar of McFarland.


Deep Purple, acrylic painting, by Bruce J. Peeso of Monson, Massachusetts.

Land 2, oil pastel on paper, by Jeff Condon of Grand Rapids, Michigan.


Promise of Rain, hand-pulled serigraph, by Steve Harmston of Sammamish, Washington.
