A Place in Western Iowa

A Place in Western Iowa, oil on canvas, 44" x 52", 2015

Larry Welo's career has spanned over forty years.  He worked as a printmaker for most of that time, but he began working in oils in 2012.  His studio is located in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin, and he is represented by Iowa Artisans Gallery in Iowa City and Olson Larsen Galleries in Des Moines.  In September of 2015, he had a major show of his paintings at Gulden Kunstverk in Norway.

The artist writes, "When my career began in 1974, I learned by doing.  Northeastern Iowa is a visually stimulating place, and living there, I drew the things around me.  The places that I drew became the subjects of my etchings and oil paintings.  As an artist, ideas are of great importance, and being able to communicate those ideas is of the greatest importance.  It is something that I have attempted throughout my career."
