A Celebration of All Things Cultural, Artistic, and Entertaining in Madison
Nov 17, 2010
This is an exciting time of year for fans of local art: It’s when the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission releases its new art calendar. The theme for 2011 is Flora & Fauna, and it’s a superb collection paying homage to the plants, animals, imagery and slices of life that make our region interesting and beautiful year-round.
Let’s take a peek at the rest of the artwork we’ll enjoy in the months to come:
January: Pamela Andros offers a tender scene of a boy and a dog enjoying a sunny winter day.
February: The textures and hues of Audrey Lundquist Paesel's oil painting hint at still lifes of the past.
March: This oil painting by Jonathan Wilde reminds us of the wild beauty of late winter.
April: The precision of this etching by Jayne Reid Jackson is breathtaking.
May: Sarah Aslakson abstracts the forms and colors of sheep in this watercolor.
June: Kristine Martineau Gellerman's still life pastel is stunningly realistic and graceful.
July: Berries become poetic in Linda Gerard Dzik's watercolor.
August: Leslie DeMuth depicts a sweeping landscape in oils.
September: Randall Berndt electrifies farm life in this acrylic work.
October: S.V. Medaris's hand-relief print is graphic and compelling.
November: One can practically hear the silence in this scene by Katherine Steichen Rosing.
December: Brian McCormick's watercolor embodies the term "winter wonderland."
The calendars are $7.58 and available at the Cultural Affairs Commission Office (room 421 of the City-County Building, 210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.), at culturalaffairscommission.com, and municipal halls and other retail locations (listed here).
