Just heard I had 3 graphite drawings accepted into the exhibit this year. This will be year 7 for me. I am honored. Here's a bit about the show. This juried exhibit remains one of the most popular and well-attended in its’ 32 year history at New Visions Gallery. Each year, we celebrate art which has in some way drawn inspiration from agriculture – modern or historical. It opens dialogues aboutagriculture, how it has impacted our society, and how it will continue to shape us in the future. This is anespecially meaningful theme because of the gallery’s location in the heart of Wisconsin’s Dairyland;Marshfield Clinic is also the home to the National Farm Medicine Center. New Vision's Gallery Marshfield Clinic, Marshfield WI
Exhibit dates: June 11-August 3, 2018
• Opening Reception: June 10, 2018 from 1-3pm

Leslie Zantow, Finalist in the Fairtastic Wisconsin State Fair Poster Competition for 2016;
Now that the winning poster for the Wisconsin State Fair has been revealed, I am taking the opportunity to post my entry in the poster competition. I was one of 4 finalists. Rozan Henning won the competition with her design. The theme this year was "Animals at the Fair". I had a great deal of fun designing the poster. I was thinking of a child's view of the animals. My personal theme was the animals coming to the fair. The chickens on the road and the pig sitting below the Wisconsin State Fair entry way. Flying pigs and marching horses and cows. It was a lot of fun.
Animals and art have always been a passion in Leslie’s life. Early in life, Leslie discovered her love of animals and her need to put them to paper. Her love of line and composition are easily evident in her work. Her paintings become stories inspired by her experience observing nature, both domestic and wild.
Leslie has exhibited her artwork in solo and group exhibitions. Juried exhibits include, "Culture and Agriculture” in 2008, 2009, 2010,2012,2014 and 2015 at New Visions Gallery in Marshfield, WI,“Nightwalker 98” at the Fort Collins Museum in Fort Collins, Co., “The Horse Show” at The Art Gallery in Hotchkiss, Co. and at the Barrington Arts Council exhibit “Horses in Art” in Barrington, Ill, the American Academy of Equine Art Fall Showcase at the Museum of the Horse in Lexington, Ky 2000.2001,2002,2004 and 2015 , the Wisconsin State Capital, the Alexander House in Port Edwards, WI, the Winona Arts Center in Winona, MN., The Pumphouse in LaCrosse and the Heyde Center for the Arts in Chippewa Falls, WI.
Leslie was recently selected as one of 4 finalists in the Wisconsin State Fairtastic Poster Competition
