Favorite Local Visual Artist

1st Place: Steve Bateman
2nd Place: Brent Stelzer
3rd Place: Antic Studios

Prolific local installation artist Steve Bateman’s work has been on display all throughout Eau Claire, from his notorious “Garbage Swan” outside Banbury Place to his metal fish sculpture on Water Street. Using mostly recycled and found materials, Bateman’s work remains prominent in the Eau Claire art scene. Working with another type of sculpting, Brent Stelzer of Brent Douglas Floral has been turning floral arrangements into works of art since 2004, using a breathtaking variety of flora and fauna. And as we all reminisce about the Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival, don’t forget Eau Claire-based Antic Studios was there — as well as at tons of other electronic music festivals around the Midwest — projecting psychedelic visuals over 3D landscapes. —Serena Wagner
