ARTISTS

John Preston

One of the Midwest's major landscape painters, John Preston continues to find new and appealing scenes within one county in Iowa. His popular landscapes capture the features of fields, tree islands, fence rows, and ribbons of gravel curving over gently rolling prairie. John has a particular interest in the expansive Iowa horizon as it continues to hold his attention after moving from the East Coast many years ago. Preston came from Maryland to study in Fairfield, Iowa where he earned his BFA in 1984 at Maharishi International University. Painting full time, Preston has participated in many solo and group shows, and his works hang in a wide range of collections, including those of Equitable of Iowa, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Hubbell Realty, Iowa State Bank, Amoco Oil, Brunnier Art Museum at Iowa State University, Farm Bureau Financial Services, and the Hotel Pattee. John Preston attracts the admiration of contemporary artists and collectors because of his exceptional ability to create appealing images from both direct observation and memory.
