 Artist Information

Artists are invited to submit work on the theme:   
 "EcoWisdom"  

Our 2023 Visual Art juror was Karen Bondarchuk.

Karen is a native of Canada and has been Professor of Art at Western Michigan University's Gwen Frostic School of Art since 1996.  Her artwork is varied, including sculpture, kinetics, bookmaking, drawing, video and performance, and incorporates a wide array of materials from wool to scavenged tires to bagpipes. Her current work explores the level of artificiality that defines our relationship with the wild, and the reality that most close encounters with wildlife are by human design (zoos, roadsides, galleries, natural history museums, etc). 

Karen has exhibited in the United States and internationally, and her work is in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada and numerous private collections.
