Barbara Kieffer Rowe
The opportunity to live in and experience the Black Hills of South Dakota builds Barbara Kieffer Rowe’s creative imagery — continuously beckoning and bestowing inspiration for her interpretation. The ancient world and nature themes in Barbara’s works combine the artist’s fascination with forms and events belonging to the Earth over millions of years. Advanced degrees in art, geology, and paleontology influence a wide range of imagery that incorporates intrinsic natural design. Her paintings and sculptures intuitively and personally capture the Black Hills’ beauty and ancient intrigue in innovative multimedia processes that frequently coalesce with specimens from the area’s world-famous rocks and fossils.
She invites viewers to experience each piece of artwork as an essence of discovery.
