Public Reception: November 3, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Dixie is a life-long resident of Fort Wayne as well as an artist who enjoys working in a variety of media. She also happens to be a creative contributor and dedicated volunteer at the Botanical Conservatory! Dixie has attended classes at the Fort Wayne Art Institute School of Fine Arts and the Winona School of Professional Photography. She began her artistic adventures as a traveling photographer with her husband Norman Bradley, with whom she shared a studio and gallery space. In addition to painting with oils and watercolor, she has “painted with light” when making cibachrome photograms. Many of her paintings are inspired by travels to Mexico, Central America, and the American West. She also collects found objects for the assemblage of mixed media collages. Considering the evolving range of her work, Dixie says she is able to prevent “artist’s block” by moving between each of these media.
