In the Gallery


Tom Anderson        
Tom Anderson is a Burlington, IA native whose first endeavors in the art world centered on aviation art. That artwork was a combination of his love of aircraft and a fascination with history. With time, his portfolio has come to include streetscapes, the animal-world and portraits. His technical skills acquired through his years as an architectural designer, along with his interest in history, lend realism to his paintings with historical detail and accuracy. His works include those in pencil, acrylics and oils. Several of his paintings are part of the permanent collection of the United States Air Force in Washington, DC and the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio.

Margaret Ertz
I am a local painter based in downtown Burlington, Iowa.  I have been drawing and painting for over 40 years and attended the University of Iowa School of Fine Arts from 1985-1988.  I work in both oil & acrylic on canvas. I am drawn to light and shadow, line and pattern, the geometric compositions from these reflected on architecture. The theme of realism not only describes the style of painting, but also the subject matter of this series. The goal of this series is to elevate the beauty and complexity of humble buildings and real places I encounter each day.

Susan Reinier
Susan (Ballinger) Reinier is originally from Burlington and now resides in Cedar Rapids. Her current works are largely represented in oil paint, although she also enjoys creating in graphite and charcoal. The subject of her art is often everyday objects, best described by a viewer as ‘unpretentious’. Her current works range from landscape to still life to portrait/figurative, but she is most often drawn back to her love for portrait and figurative work. Susan’s paintings The Dressmaker and The Surrealist are the beginning of a new series devoted to capturing other creative people and combining their work with what has influenced them on their own creative journeys.
