Title

Broken Kettle Winter

Description

Bruce Morrison earned a BFA in 1975 from the University of Iowa. He majored in Photography and minored in Painting and Serigraphy. His work has been exhibited across the United States and Canada, as well as overseas. He lives with his wife Georgeann in rural northwest Iowa in the Tallgrass Praire pothole region.
Bruce Morrison favors the landscape as a subject in his photography, paintings and drawings. He uses large or medium format cameras to capture stunning images of the Iowa landscape. When painting or drawing, Morrison prefers a plein aire approach. Like the Impressionists, he works outdoors, painting the landscape he sees in front of him, usually on a smaller in scale than his photographs.<br>Bruce has a deep personal interest in the natural heritage of our remaining Tallgrass Prairie, and much of his work over the past decade has been deeply influenced by this subject. In addition to recording the beauty of the prairie, he has devoted much time and energy to furthering and encouraging Prairie reconstruction/restoration projects and education in northwestern Iowa
