Exhibiting Artist: Lori Biwer-Stewart

September 27 – November 9, 2018

A self-taught printmaker, Lori Biwer-Stewart finds inspiration in the natural world around her as well as her own dreams and beliefs. She enjoys incorporating symbolic images such as birds, keys, and doors to encourage thought and provoke the viewer’s own interpretation. For added texture and text, Biwer-Stewart will often incorporate monopirnt and collograph to her linocut prints which have grown in both size and complexity over the years.


“I grew up on a traditional farm in Northern Iowa with plenty of oak trees filled with chattering crows and blackbirds. My grandmother and I would walk the gravel roads. She once convinced me that the small poplar trees that grew wild in our ditches were whispering to us. As the wind blew softly through them I swear I could make out a word or two. I can still hear them clearly in my head and I still believe there may have been some magic there. Maybe it was those instances that inspired me to express myself as an artist.” – Lori Biwer-Stewart
