About the Artist
Dale Marx is inspired by the horizon and the story land can speak. He is passionate about moments that stop time. Moments that give space for breath.

Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, farm scenes have inspired much of Dale's recent art. Amish and Mennonite farms quilt the landscape and speak their own "farmscape" story.

Dale lives in Lancaster. Dale's BA in Art, background in construction, crafts, design, and fine art provides him with many outlets for his creativity. His MDiv degree and work in ministry gives him a depth of faith and thought as well as an appreciation for spirit and mystery.
A.T. southern Virginia Dale marked the transition into his more focused art career by backpacking the 2160 mile Appalachian Trail. Since finishing his hike, Dale has been honoring his creative spirit. By bringing together the airy softness of colored pencil and the solid values of acrylic paint, Dale has created a unique style that accentuates depth. Also, by emphasizing an important foreground image the objects become more like symbols.
"Symbolic Realism" is an appropriate term to describe Dale's style. It is both appealing and engaging.

Dale exhibites his art at regional shows and in several local Lancaster County businesses. S
amples of Dale's art in mural form can be viewed at the Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Lancaster, and at the Bowman House Bed & Breakfast in Neffsville.
