Mark your calendar for a Meet the Artist event coming to Maquoketa, Iowa.

The five newest Iowa Arts Council Fellows are crisscrossing the state this year to display and discuss their work with other Iowa artists and arts supporters. So mark your calendar for a “Meet the Artist” event near you, and say hello to:

  • Noah Doely has received national and international attention for his visual artwork addressing the various ways the natural world has been interpreted throughout history.
  • For Mary Jones‘ latest project, she walked portions of Des Moines’ east side neighborhoods and created a mixed-media exhibit about urban walking, focusing primarily on the city’s infrastructure.
  • The author of “Instead of Dying,” Lauren Haldeman started writing as a girl in Washington, D.C.
  • Julia Franklin has been creating art from discarded objects for more than 20 years, telling stories from the objects people leave behind.
  • Using only window light and inspiration from Dutch still-life paintings, Molly Wood‘s photography explores botanicals as metaphors for the natural cycles of life, death and rebirth.

The final stop is the Maquoketa Art Experience in Maquoketa. Join us there on Saturday, April 13, 2019.
