Donna Flanery, 2009 Lilian Fellow
FLANERY received her BFA in 2005 at The University of Montana
in Missoula, MT. She was a 2006 Folgelberg Fellow at The Northern
Clay Center in Minneapolis, MN, where she also received a 2007
Jerome Emerging Artist Project Grant. Flanery's earthenware
pots feature narrative and painterly surfaces of animal friends
"I enjoy when my pots appeal to children,
and I want to share an appreciation of cartoons and mark
making with them. Ideologically, this silly approach to the
serious business of my own artwork is of great value to me.
I hope to infect others with a similar playful irreverence."
