Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota.  After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back.  Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries.  She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.

Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.  Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself and express what she feels. That is what inspires her to never reject possibilities in subject matter.

Artist Statement

My techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My greatest reward comes from developing composites. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.

For July, the gallery conducted the 6th Annual “Nature” Online Art Competition.  2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion into the Gallery’s August 2016 online group art exhibition.  The “Nature” theme was considered to be any art which depicted the physical world and is considered to be anything that was not created by or has been substantially altered by man. The gallery accepted art which was representative or in abstract form for possible inclusion into this art exhibition. 

This art competition and the submission process and competition for the artists began in June 2016 and concluded on July 27, 2016. The gallery received 814 entries from 25 different countries from around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Venezuela, Vietnam and the Virgin Islands. In addition, the gallery received entries from 38 different states.  

Due to the volume of entries, the gallery felt that it was necessary to create three (3) media categories, in order to make the judging and the results fair for this competition. The media categories are Painting & Other, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art. In addition, for this particular competition, we have an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries from the 3 media categories.
