100 Artists of the Midwest, (2012) by E. Ashley Rooney. Dave Tilton pp 202-203.

Book Description from Schiffer

This expansive book takes a fresh look at 100 living artists from the Midwest, their personal stories and inspirations, along with several examples of their works. A wealth of urban settings, wide plains, flourishing cities, rushing rivers, and placid lakes are source material and inspiration for the artists. These works show how each artist interprets life. They explore the richness of the homegrown imagery of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin – their culture, society, and environment. They are delineating our stories for future generations in oil, pastels, sculpture, and other media. Their works are displayed in over 600 full color images. This book is essential for all who appreciate or practice art today.

Other artists in the book whose work you may be familiar with includes: Michael Banning, Stephanie Barencz, Rodger Bechtold, Mary Bero, Mark Brautigam, Sheryl Budnik, Mark Chatterley, Yueh-Mei Cheng, Terrance James Coffman, Leslie DeMuth, Joel Elgin, Patrick Farrell, Raymond Gloeckler, Martha Hayden, Mike Kelly, Helen Klebesadel, Cathy Martin, Lon Michels, John Mominee, Francisco X. Mora, Mark Mulhern, Charles Munch, Timothy M. O’Neill, Bill Reid, Jim Rose, Jan Serr, Sharon Stelter, Fred Stonehouse, Tom Uttech, Jeremy Wolf, & Janica Yoder.
