The central Missouri, river-view studio of painter Gloria Gaus offers her contemplative solitude and direct access to the Midwestern landscapes featured throughout her body of work. She paints both in the comfort of her studio and outdoors on location, but says, “nothing compares to the freedom and intimacy of painting outdoors.” With a balance of immediacy and calm resolution, Gaus gives life and energy to familiar scenes. Her work has been honored with numerous regional awards, including Les Bourgeois Vineyards’ Collector’s Series wine label awards on two occasions. Her paintings can be found internationally in both private and corporate collections.
