Artist in Residence 2016-2017

Jason J. Anhorn has been working as a professional freelance artist since 1996, specializing in fine art and illustration. He studied art at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, UW-Stout and UWEC. He has drawn caricatures at events for 20 years, creating funny yet flattering portrayals of people. He instructs painting classes at Eau Claire Regional Arts Center and privately. He paints portraits, murals and original art. He has won many awards for his artwork and he strives to keep improving upon his successes. He moved to Eau Claire from Uptown Minneapolis in 2005. Two years later in 2007 Jason joined a group of east side hill neighborhood friends and created Open Air Festival of the Arts, an annual fine art festival held at Phoenix Park. As the organizing group dwindled during the next couple of years, he organized the art festival solo between 2010 - 2013. He has traveled the United States drawing people at events and competing at snow sculpting events including an event his team won in northern Italy in 2008. His snow sculpting team won the national snow sculpting event in 2013, 2014 and 2015 in Lake Geneva, WI. He is one of two artists that is hired by Volume One to create weekly snow sculptures at Boyd Park for Winter After Hours. He has painted murals as far away at Brooklyn, New York and drawn caricatures in Miami, New York and L.A.. He is dedicated to creating original artwork and inspiring people to create their own art. He also loves adventure and has scuba dived in Key Largo, snowboarded in Italy, visited the windiest place on earth at the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, drew on top of the World Trade Center, camped in northern Wisconsin in the middle of winter and many more stories you can ask him about in person.
