Country Roads

Country Roads, pastel

Gordon Kellenberger is a full time painter and potter working out of the Wasch Haus Studio in the Historic Amana Colony.  "Throughout the seasons, in the morning and late afternoon hours, I take delight in traveling and experiencing the country roads of Eastern Iowa in my Jeep. I find myself experiencing a new sense of light, color and pattern. This awareness has become the inspiration for this new work." Kellenberger graduated with a degree in art from the University of Northern Iowa and is a former art teacher and founder of the Amana Arts Guild. In the early 80's he started the Art Iowa Workshops for artists and educators, which still continue today. Kellenberger is a past recipient of the Iowa Arts Council's Iowa Arts Award, which honors individuals for their commitment to excellence in the arts.
