ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Artists
Anita K Plucker - Artworks by Anita

This month we wish to recognize the dearly departed Anita Baedke-Plucker, nicknamed Katie, who was born and raised in Terril, Iowa. After graduating from Terril Community School, Anita attended Buena Vista College, Storm Lake, Iowa, receiving a BA in Art Education. Her artwork evolved and grew popular as she went from art show to art show, to having limited-edition prints published, to displaying her work in juried regional and national exhibitions and galleries.

After joining the Spencer Area Arts Council, Anita became Director of the Gallery Shop and later, worked full time as the Director of Education and Outreach for Arts on Grand in Spencer until the art department position at the Spencer Middle School opened. Anita resigned after 15 years of teaching, enabling her to become a full-time artist and to continue her love to teach by conducting workshops throughout the Midwest and  at her studio/gallery, Artworks by Anita, in Terril, Iowa.

Join us to remember Anita and her art this month. Anita's original watercolor paintings and replicated prints are available now and can be found in our gallery and online at https://www.artsongrand.org/gallery-shop.php#!/Anita-K-Plucker/c/133315528

An official Memorial Art Sale Open House will also be held at Anita's studio in Terril, Iowa (Suite A - 107 S State St) on July 21-22 from 10am-4pm.
