Pastels by Barbara Arnold Heitzman
May 23 – September 18, 2019

This exhibition is an eclectic mix of paintings with a variety of subjects ranging from still life, landscapes, and people in specific settings – including works created in the studio and plein-air by Barbara Arnold Heitzman. For years, Heitzman mainly worked in the studio using reference photos taken for ideas, but recently has taken up painting plein air, painting directly from nature on location. Regardless of where she’s making her works she enjoys going beyond the local color and using imaginative color juxtapositions and textures.

Barbara Arnold Heitzman is a Signature Member of the Iowa Pastel Society, a founder of Plein Air Painters of Dubuque, and a member of Iowa Artists. She shares a studio at Studioworks in the Dubuque Millwork District. Her work has been exhibited throughout Iowa and has received numerous First Place Awards at Bluff Strokes “Paint Out” in Dubuque, and at Iowa Pastel Society and Iowa Artists Society’s regional and state competitions. Barbara is a retired instructor from University of Northern Iowa Malcolm Price Laboratory School where she taught expressive arts and elementary creative drama. She has a MAE from University of Northern Iowa and a BFA from University of Michigan.
