Recently featured in Southwest Art magazine, May, 2017 “Wild Kingdom,” Markwardt is currently exhibited at the Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, GA. In November her work will hang at the McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD as a Master Signature Member of Women Artists of the West. In addition, she is invited for her 6th consecutive year to Cowgirl Up! at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum for 2018.
Markwardt, an international, contemporary, Western artist creates oil paintings of farm animals and wildlife in intense, vibrant colors. “I love to express the personalities and soulfulness of animals on my canvas,” she said. “I feel I am speaking for them in a way, and the bright colors I use make them very lively and fun to live with. Collectors often tell me that my work makes them smile every day, which makes me very happy!”
Markwardt’s work has been included in Southwest Art, Western Art Collector, Art of the West and Cowboys and Indians magazines.
Your Private Collection Art Gallery has added a new feature, “My Art, My Story.” Markwardt
will speak about her art and the story behind it at the event. She will be painting at the gallery in the afternoon prior to her reception.
