John Ribble

John Ribble has a passion for drawing. He has solely dedicated himself to the pursuit of art, and the lifelong goal of being an artist. He has built a career of recording the natural beauty of the Wisconsin countryside. Preserving the rural areas of Dane, Green, and Iowa counties before development overtakes them. Ribble works exclusively plein air, rather than in the studio. He feels the approach is necessary for the creation of art that can maintain its authentic connection to the land, while bringing forth the spontaneous and emotive qualities that can only come from having your feet planted firmly in the dirt. 


Prior to the opening of his February solo show, the Artisan Gallery staff had the opportunity to talk to Ribble about this body of work, and what makes each composition so incredible. He goes into how he goes about finding a spot worth capturing, the themes to which he continues to return, and some details about a selection of pieces.
