Fresh from the Studio is a virtual program for W&TW artist members to share what they are working on now. During 10-minute presentations, each artist will present work in progress, newly finished artworks, and recent or upcoming projects. Fresh from the Studio is your chance to see what is new and hear from contemporary artists. This program is free and open to the public.
In this Fresh from the Studio, we will hear from artists Hannah Spector, Elizabeth Gerberich, and Shannon Faseler.

Shannon Faseler works in a variety of media, she strongly believes in an interdisciplinary approach to the visual arts. Her works are based on climate change and its practical effects on the planet including floods, glaciers, and drought-affected landscapes.
