Bruce Morrison painting

Studying at the University of Iowa’s School of Art, Morrison majored in Photography and minored in two other mediums: Painting and Serigraphy.

The Photographic landscape is treated in large, medium and digital formats; in paintings or drawings, Morrison prefers a plein air approach and these works are smaller in scale. While his work in serigraphy plays upon a more graphic approach of shape, line and color.

 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. He has spent the past 10 years devoting time, energy, and his work in furthering and encouraging prairie reconstruction/restoration projects and education in NW Iowa.

Some of his exhibitions include: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI,  Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Santa Barbara, CA, Bernice Pauahi Bishop Art Museum, Honolulu, HA, People’s Museum of Natural History, Beijing, China, Artique Ltd., Anchorage, AK,  MacNider Art Museum, Mason City, IA, Witter Gallery, Storm Lake, IA; Arts on Grand, Spencer, IA; Sanford Museum, Cherokee, IA; Iowa Central Community College, Ft Dodge, IA.
