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
I've been working on my website and have a new look. Check it out at lesliezantow.com. New images coming withing the next 2 weeks.
Remember this: Mural Mosaic Project. I was a contributing artist for the project. Panel #132. The images I am sharing are from the US unveiling of the project in Columbus, OHIO in 2008. Participating artists in the pics. Top pic, Pat Getha with her son Ian, Leslie Zantow, Cyndy Bryden(not in project), Mary Singer and Delia Pacheco.
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, the American Academy of Equine Art Fall Showcase at the Museum of the Horse in Lexington, Ky 2000.2001,2002,2003 and 2015, 2016 and 2018, "Culture and Agriculture” in 2009, 2010,2012,2014 and 2015,2016 and 2018 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 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.
