About the Cover Image

Our cover art this year is by Jim Madden. This painting, which depicts a landscape painted from memories of a childhood spent alongshore, is a 24" x 20" oil on panel called Harborside 1994. Mr. Madden earned a BArch from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975 and practiced architecture in Portland, Oregon until 1987. While living in Bozeman, Montana from 1988 to 1992 he began painting landscapes and returned to school. He earned a BFA in painting from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994 and an MA from The University of Iowa in 1996. He is presently an MFA candidate in painting at The University of Iowa and plans to return with his wife, Corinne, to Montana upon his graduation in May, 1997. All works are in the collection of the artist and are reproduced with his permission.
