A work in progress--Cortney Heimerl's tribute to her grandfather in beadwork and embroidery. Heimerl works out of her Milwaukee home and blends her craft work with freelance writing and curating.

Heimerl celebrates her small-town Wisconsin roots in her string of embroidered "Native of Portage" flags.

Jody Clowes and Martha Glowacki of the Watrous Gallery examine Marna Goldstein Brauner's "Curiosities: You're Ruining My Epiphany." Brauner is a faculty member at the Peck School of the Arts, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Madison artist Susan Johnson White incorporates hair she collects from friends and family members into her artwork. In this work in progress, she couches wisps of children's hair in an antique bib.
