“Magpie Dreams” by Leland Brenholt
2019, acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 16x20”

Leland Brenholt is often challenged (and inspired) by the subtleties of quantum entanglement.

“My New Year’s resolution was (after almost a decade) to start painting again. I decided to re-do an assignment one of my instructors at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design had given us: Produce 100 truly UGLY canvases. Which is not possible! Thing is – when one truly abandons any internal censorship, when one becomes willing to take any risk ... something surprising always emerges. Ergo – ‘Magpie Dreams’!” – 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.
