Cheney receives excellence award


Strathbutler artist, Janice Wright Cheney, receives 2013 Lt. Governor’s excellence award:

“My creatures, whatever they are and whatever they are made of, must be life-size,” says Janice Wright Cheney of her current textile-based sculptures, which include grizzly bears, coyotes, rats and cockroaches. Accuracy in form and scale matter, she insists; she wants the viewer to react emotionally and physically to the presence of the animal.
