MASON CITY – Lori Biwer-Stewart, of Osage, was awarded Best in Show in early 2021 during the Area Show: 47 exhibition for her linocut, January Flight Pattern. As prize for her win, she has been granted a solo exhibition in the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s Center Space Gallery. Biwer-Stewart’s exhibition, featuring a collection of twenty-nine art prints, is now open to the public.
A native of North Iowa, Biwer-Stewart continues to live and create in the area. She has worked in the graphic design field for over thirty years and maintains creating her own art in her free time.
“I’m not interested in relationships of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions while telling a story. Some of my subjects are quite beautiful, others less so. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual and ordinary places.”
Lori Biwer-Stewart’s exhibition will be on display through Saturday, November 27, 2021. Admission to the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum is free. Museum hours are Tuesday, Thursday = 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Wednesday, Friday, Saturday = 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; closed Sunday, Monday.
