Oh Deer, Photography by Maureen Hagen


My Buddy, by Maureen HagenWhere: University Hospital E5/2 Hospital Entrance

600 Highland Ave.

Madison, WI 53792

When: Dec. 5-Jan. 4

Image: My Buddy, by Maureen Hagen


Maureen Hagen is a local photographer from the Mount Horeb area. She shoots weddings, high school seniors and family portraits year-round on the side as her main job commitment is Signage Coordinator for UW Health. She really enjoys country drives to see the wildlife, especially whitetail deer. Over the past year, Maureen shot this series capturing the life of a whitetail. Maureen drives the same route to capture these images and many times gets pictures of some of the same deer as they each have slightly unique coloring setting them apart. As you will see in the series, deer like to group together in the winter where there are often 20 to 30 in the fields grazing at any one time. In the spring, you will find the bucks' horns in a fuzzy velvet. In November, the larger bucks are more visible as they are in full rut. You will get to experience the whitetail's gracefulness and curiosity in this series.

"I am a glass artist, working with both mosaics and fused glass, although I primarily create mosaics. My passion is three-dimensional mosaics. I try to incorporate 3D elements and/or the feeling of depth and movement in my mosaics whenever possible. All my creations are made with hand-cut stained glass. In addition to glass, I often use found or recycled items." - Jillian Cori Lippert

Sunday Afternoon, by Irene Olson


"Watercolor has been my passion for the past 10 years. I am always looking for the next photo to take and develop into a painting. I am a member of Madison Watercolor Society and the Madison Art Guild." - Deb Gleason



Sunday Afternoon, by Irene Olson

"I moved to the USA in 1967 from India. I am influenced by the colors and rhythms of India and the Vibrancy of Madison and Dane County. My work reflects both cultures. I was always interested in the arts, and after retiring from medicine, I pursued art, gardening and making bread. My art is in corporate and individual collections and I have been featured in the Dane County Cultural Affairs calendar. I love what I do." - Irene Olson

"My collages are made from discarded box labels, bumper stickers and 'pesky' address labels. Odd color combinations are dictated by my material sources. I hope to tickle your eyes' funny bone with color and shapes. I am dedicated to recycling, so all my works are original compositions. When one of my compositions finds a home, there's always another on emerging from the point of my knife blade onto a nice colored box I rescued from a dumpster." - Karen Loper
