Featured Artist - Dottie Fenner

Dottie Fenner, an artist working in many different mediums, will be showing her work as featured artist for the Boulder City Art Gallery starting March 26. She has selected the subject “Horses in Motion”. for her display. “I chose horses as my subject matter because they reflect the sensitivity, grace in motion and a complexity of conformation I like to portray.”

Dottie claims her whole life has been spent around horses and other animals. She grew up in Wisconsin and Ohio, and went to college in Cincinnati, becoming involved in the art program there. She moved on to Mesa State College in Grand Junction, receiving a BA in in Fine Arts and a BS in Business Management. Dottie also holds a CPA license in Nevada and presently serves as Treasurer for the Boulder City Art Guild.

As Featured Artist for the months of April through June, Dottie’s work centers around three large paintings of horses done in oils, acrylics and pastels. She creates these paintings using only the primary colors of red, blue and yellow mixed on her pallet to get the soft muted yet emotionally charged figures. She does not dwell on the background surfaces, letting it become misty so the figures stand on their own.

Contrasting the three large main pictures, Dottie is presenting a number of pastel, watercolor and ink line drawings. These hard edged images show her skill in rendering heart pounding action. A preview of her work may be seen on her web site as well as in the upcoming Boulder City Fine Art Festival on April 16 &17. There will be a reception to meet the artist on April 9th in the Gallery at the Boulder Dam Hotel. All are welcome to come and meet the artist.

This is a show not to miss!
