Alumnae Spotlight: Natalie Campbell & Carissa Carman

Jul 30, 2017

WSW alumnae Carissa Carman and Natalie Campbell have spent over a year submerged in the world of contemporary weaving.

Alumnae Spotlight: Heidi Neilson

Mar 14, 2017

After poking through WSW’s archives to read alumna Heidi Neilson‘s artists’ books, it was a bit jarring to find a photograph of a satellite dish on her website’s home page. In hindsight, it shouldn’t have been a shock—Heidi’s second WSW-published book, Orbital Debris Simulator, walks readers through layers of atmospheric litter using space-themed toys and 3-D glasses. Space and… View Article

Alumnae Spotlight: Jen P. Harris

Feb 14, 2017

In her Iowa City studio, Jen P. Harris builds iconographic, contemporary mosaics with ink and wood, but when she arrived in WSW’s silkscreen studio in 2012, she had a very different type of project in mind.
