Roberta Condon is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Handweavers Guild of America. Her works are featured in her own gallery in Portage, as well as in regional and national shows and in private and corporate collections. Her fiber art of basketry and vessels is creating something that is a historic tradition. Pine needle and grass coiling into baskets inspired by forest and desert floor, flowing currents and found items stretching the traditional forms and materials to embrace contemporary meanings. Roberta said, “I’m not only making art for my own and future generations, I am embodying the work of my ancestors.” Roberta’s paintings of pastel are works of art that abstract nature with hard and soft edges expressing the brilliance and the murky shades of the natural view.

Pre-registration is required.
Claudette Lee-Roseland, as a professional artist working with acrylic and oils, she loves playing with shape, color, value and form to create movement of the viewer’s eye throughout the painting, infusing the surface with energy for a look that the viewer will find pleasurable and continue to see something new. Claudette has been creating art and teaching art for more than 25 years. She began her artistic life with drawing lessons from a local painter before she went to kindergarten. Her interest in art was fueled early on with trips to the Chicago Art Institute. In college, she studied with Lester Schwartz, a well-respected Wisconsin artist of the time. Following graduation, she became an educator who added artistic events into her social studies curriculum whenever possible while perusing painting on a personal level.
