Thomas Macker of Jackson and June Glasson and Diana Baumbach, both of Laramie, are the recipients of 2015 Wyoming Arts Council Visual Arts Fellowships.
Thomas Macker of Jackson creates installation work using photography, 3-D rendered objects and assemblage sculptures.
June Glasson is a painter and mixed media sculpture artist who is “increasingly influenced by living in the American West.”
Diana Baumbach works primarily in paper and textiles using repetitive processes such as piercing, punching, cutting and folding to create imagery.
Honorable mentions were presented to David Henderson of Basin and Shelby Shadwell of Laramie.
The Jurors for the 2015 Visual Arts Fellowships were Marjorie Vecchio, independent curator, Reno Nev.; Robert Crouch, artist and curator, Los Angeles, Calif.; and Perry Allen Price, director of education for the American Craft Council in Minneapolis. The jurors expressed appreciation for the diversity and quality of the artwork they reviewed, and regretted that they could not select more recipients.
Marjorie Vecchio will also curate the upcoming Biennial Exhibition which will include fellowship winners from 2014 and 2015 and will be held at the University of Wyoming Art Museum in the summer of 2015.
