Join us for Deep in the Art of DeWitt County, showcasing outstanding artists who have each called the DeWitt County area home. The exhibit will feature paintings and drawings by Kyle Polzin, Mark Kohler, Buck Schiwetz, Martha Sawyers, and Charles Schorre. The show, sponsored by the DeWitt County Historical Commission, celebrates DeWitt County’s 175th founding anniversary.
The assembled artworks span more than a century of award-winning artwork by five artists. The show includes works by three masters who lived and worked in the 20th century, through unprecedented times of change in the art world. Buck Schiwetz, Charles Schorre, and Martha Sawyers each staked a brave claim in commercial art before emerging as well-regarded artists on their own. Kyle Polzin and Mark Kohler, both contemporary painters, bring fresh vision in Western art and solid craftsmanship to their watercolors and canvases. Horses and riders, landscapes, still life studies, and portraits are vivid and timeless.
The scope of world view and life experience captured by these artists is inspiring. We hope you will stop by with your family and take in an extraordinary moment of local pride.
