Artslandia Magazine is honored and excited to announce our 2017-2018 cover artist, the venerated, Karen Wippich!
On selecting Karen Wippich for the 2017-2018 magazine cover, Misty Tompoles, Founder and Publisher of Artslandia stated, “Karen was ultimately chosen for her work’s feminine perspective on today’s societal conversation. The seemingly effortless blending of social commentary and captivating composition sets this artist apart. She encourages her audience to see themselves in her work, to participate in the act of gathering history together with image to create something deeply personal to each viewer.”
