Rose M. Burgweger
The serene beauty of rural Kansas is shown in my photography with no retouching/ enhancing. The "everyday places" of fields, trees and rural roads are photographed with a painterly feel. Misty mornings and natural lighting add to intriguing compositions and depth of contrast bringing you to a peaceful and endearing place.
Much of my work is photographed in De Soto, where I live on acreage surrounded by fields and Cedar Creek. I also venture out to the Flint Hills, where I’ve hung the Symphony in the Flint Hills Art Exhibit for many years. Last year I took part in a Flint Hills burn capturing some unique photos at dusk that turned into waves of fire.
The past ten years I’ve participated in a variety of juried art shows that include:
State of the Arts-Prairie Village Art at the Center-Overland Park Arti Gras-Leawood Westport Art Show-Kansas City Somerset Art in the Vines-Paola Sunflower Artfest-De Soto, Lawrence Art in the Park Kansas Sampler Festival Buttonwood Art Space
Maple Leaf Festival Hollis Winter Art Show St. Paul School of Theology
Trinity Lutheran Church-Mission La Salle Street Church-Chicago.
Hutamaki International, VT Holding Company, Parade of Homes,
Commonwealth Financial Network
Kaw Prarie Church, Overland Park Christian Church,
and several private collections.
I enjoy teaching Art to all ages of children and adults–photography, drawing, painting, and developed “Art in my Garden” at my home studo. At Blackhawk Community College/Moline, IL I taught desktop publishing for five years. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts Education, from the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
Employed as a graphic designer for 15 years, I worked full time in advertising/promotions for the Chicago Tribune and Orlando Sentinel Star Newspapers.
Comfort my people began my journey of interweaving Scripture and photography with Walking through Scripture. I have also combined photos with songs in AV Worship.
Developed and chaired the Sunflower Artfest in De Soto, KS
Submitting grant for developing the De Soto Arts Center through The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC)
