Melinda B Hipple Artist

A practicing artist for over thirty years

Winner of regional and national awards for art and photography throughout the Midwest, I have exhibited a number of one-woman shows in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, and have had works accepted in numerous juried exhibitions.

Past gallery affiliations:

  • Aardvark Foto and Art Affair galleries in Kansas
  • The Society for Contemporary Photography in Missouri
  • Brooks Gallery in Iowa

In addition to creating fine art works and commissioned portraits, I have taught visiting artist programs to elementary and high schools in Missouri and Iowa, as well as drawing and photography classes through community colleges in Nebraska and Iowa. I've taught a number of drawing and watercolor classes through the Lumberyard Art Center in Baldwin City, Kansas—my current hometown.
