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 was employed as a graphic designer for 15 years in advertising/promotions for the
Chicago Tribune/Orlando Sentinel Star.
Scripture is interwoven in many of my pieces, that "Walk you through Scripture."
and I combine photos with songs in Audio Visual Worship.
I helped develop and chaired the Sunflower Artfest in De Soto, and received a grant for developing the De Soto Arts Center.
Presently I publish, write and design Discovering De Soto feature magazine,
teach out of my home studio and enjoy participating in art shows.
I hope you enjoy viewing the work on my web site, that has been compiled through many years. There are a variety of venues and price points for you to select from.
