Organized by the Dubuque Museum of Art, and on exhibit through June 15, 2001, the Museum presents "Ellen Wagener."
Dewitt, Iowa artist, Ellen Wagener presents the agrarian landscape of Iowa in pastel. Wagener records the changing character and patterns of the working-land transformed by seasons, planting and harvesting. The affect of turned soil and the various stages of plant growth on the color and pattern of the land, offers Wagener endless opportunities for color experimentation and compositional choices.
