“THIS ONE’S UNTITLED” by Grace Fechner
Acrylic, cut paper, graphite, India ink pen,
manila folder, 25.5” x 37.5”

Grace Fechner is a mixed media artist living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She graduated in 2013 from University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration.

“This piece is from a series of seven I made while at an artist residency in Stodvarfjordur, Iceland. The series explores humans as social animals. Child-like materials and techniques were utilized and finessed in order to abstract and echo the learning process through which people are taught how to accurately communicate themselves to others.” – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a message.
