On the Cover October 2021

This month’s cover art by Linda Kelen of Spring Green is titled “Littlehead” (cherry woodblock print, 24-by-29.5 inches in a handmade poplar frame). It’s among four of Linda’s pieces that earned her first place in this year’s Dubuque Museum of Art Biennial. Linda, who grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, and attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, works in a variety of media, including watercolor, painting, metal work and etching. While Linda’s home studio will not be open to the public during this year’s Oct. 15-17 Fall Art Tour, she is offering t-shirts you can order at lindakelenandygrabber2021.itemorder.com/sale. For more views of Linda’s work, catch the Biennial show through Oct. 31, see https://lindakelen-artings.blogspot.com and follow her on Facebook.
