Carlene Dingman Atwater
Carlene’s first workshop was with David Garrison, in a class that her
sister wanted to take “together.” Martha didn’t show up but, Carlene
had a great time and discovered the color theory that had been
missing in her amateurish paintings.
Carlene’s art education continued through the various classes offered by the local art centers. Several talented professionals moved
to the area and gave workshops that she was eager to take. The first
time Carlene saw a Wendell Mohr watercolor wash, she was hooked
on the medium. The richness of colors and the transparency of the
medium inspired her to take up watercolor.
In 2011 Carlene started a blog to become part of the daily painters’
movement. She tried to create a new small painting every day to
post on the blog. On that first year, she ended up with 200 mostly
6” x 6” paintings and found that the discipline of painting every day
improved her technique and pushed her to try new subjects.
Carlene has recently started a new and exciting project at the Fort
Madison Art Center. Each week, she is painting portraits of leaders
or volunteers from local non-profit organizations. This ambitious endeavor creates a platform that will highlight volunteerism and recognize those people who generously
work to better our community.
The 52 completed portraits will be
exhibited at the FMAAA February
2016 feature exhibit.
“I believe that a passion for learning is necessary to perform. With
every painting an artist discovers
something new about color, composition, and design. The challenge to create the unexpected
and original art fuels my imagination, and thus I never tire of the
creative process. I always get
excited when I start working with
a different medium or on a new
surface. The process of learning
and evolving is empowering.”

About the Art Center
The Fort Madison Area Arts Association (FMAAA) was
chartered in 1979 and started in the home of Ruth and Dale
Newberry. The goal of the organization was to create an
environment of communication and sharing for active artists
in the area to engage in art workshops and share their joy of
creating fine art. Since then, the FMAAA has been housed
in several downtown areas, including eight years in the
renovated Burlington Northern depot. The members of the
organization enjoyed the depot location and made significant
improvements to the facility. However, after the 2008 flood,
the difficult decision was made to leave the depot. The
FMAAA now resides at 825 Avenue G and is open from
Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00-5:00.
As the FMAAA enters a new era, the member artisan gallery
boasts over 70 regional artists, giving the unit a strong
variety of mediums and styles. The Place of Fire, our modern
glaze studio, is housed in a separate room at the rear of the
consignment gallery. This studio is available for birthday
parties, badge attainment for Girl Scout troops, and the
daily hands-on usage of creating one-of-a-kind dishware or
figurines. The monthly feature exhibition continues to bring
the best artists to the Ft. Madison stage. Annual events have
always been a strong suit for the organization, continuing such
mainstays as the yearly garden tour and Art-in-Central Park,
while also advancing new initiatives such as Art~ssippi and the
FM Ghost Hunt. The FMAAA continues to encourage new
membership, which is a crucial funding stream to further the
organization’s goals. At this time, the Expressions Art Auction
continues to be the primary funding mechanism for the
organization. Thank you for supporting this event.
