- Seacourt Print Workshop Artists – Workshop artists created works in response to Schwemberger’s photographs.
- Jaroslava Sobiskova – Finding beauty in Wisconsin’s natural landscapes, Sobiskova uses paint, felt and clay forming to express herself through her art.
- Alison Mader – Inspired by her own experiences, desires and surroundings, Mader captures her ideas in black & white and then accents images with color. A local to Madison, Mader’s exhibiting artwork reflects the year 2008, when she turned 50.
