Dolores Buchheit - St Lucas, IA

Dolores Buchheit is a rural area farmwife. She lives in St. Lucas, a little town in NE Iowa. She paints scenes she knows best; rolling hills, old barns that are disappearing, landscapes and the flowers from her large garden. Dolores’s love for nature has been instilled from early childhood and her vibrant paintings reflect her close association with nature in a lifetime of country living. Dolores works in all media. Oil is her favorite.

Dolores has been painting since 1970 and is basically self-taught. She has attended classes at nearby colleges and workshops on location for 40 years with noted artists.

Dolores is a consistent blue ribbon winner. Her paintings hang in public and private collections in many states and foreign countries. She also has a painting that hangs in USS IOWA.

Mary Ann Gloe - Decorah, IA

Although I consider myself a watercolor artist, producing works that are realistic and also experimental in flavor, recently I’ve been creating watercolor/collage works against a background of metallic silver mat board. This is a variation of the cut work watercolors I produced a few years ago. Does this mean I will continue this kind of work for the rest of my painting days? I doubt it. I tend to shift gears and head in whatever direction my muse moves me.

As a signature member of the Iowa Watercolor Society, in the past I have taken many 3-day workshops from nationally and internationally known watercolor artists. I exhibit my works at Agora Arts,  the Luther Book Store here in Decorah and the Bluff Country Artists Gallery in Spring Grove, Minnesota. I also show at the Plum Creek Gallery in Fredericksburg, Iowa. In addition I open my home and studio to the Northeast Iowa Studio Tour in October of each year.

Landscapes and figures may be the subject matter, but it is the play of paint on the surface that connects with the eye and then the heart.  "Put down your phones, pause... look and feel the beauty that surrounds us. The wonderful is often found in humble places."

"Mitakuye Oyasin"...an indigenous Native American prayer that stresses an interconnectedness with all life. We are all connected to the earth, water and each other. After many years of teaching and producing art I realize that my best art stems from strong connections. Experiences with family, friends, the out of doors and travels are all woven into the spiritual purpose for creating art. 

I am honored to have had a career in art, awards, solo exhibitions and many sales, but the greatest reward that one can receive is not of this world.
