Anita Marie Fine Art

Anita Marie Fine Art is open from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on First Fridays year-round. Find the gallery across the street from Cottonwood Center for the Arts in the former Mardosz Fine Art building. Complimentary refreshments will be served.


Featured in the main gallery space are original oil paintings from award-winning master artists-in-residence Chuck Mardosz and Richard Dahlquist in addition to selections from three local artists.

New for the month of May, AM Fine art will open a secondary gallery in its studio/classroom space dedicated to exhibiting small original oil paintings. This will evolve into a “Student Artist” exhibition space, beginning in June.

We will also be taking registration for a six-week Master Art Class with Richard Dahlquist. As an incentive to engage young artists who are reaching an intermediate level with their own style of art, we are offering a partial scholarship including the basic supplies required for the class (a $125 value) for full-time students with a recommendation from a current or former mentor. Class participation is limited to 6 students and meets on Saturdays from 9a – 12n at Anita Marie Fine Art.


Traditional fine art is always a mark of good taste and enduring elegance. Our gallery displays fine art as you may see in a contemporary, minimalist decorating scheme that allows the painting to flourish in your space.

Sunny landscapes, colorful cities, snowy forests, laughing children, and Western scenes capture the imagination and stimulate a yearning to be in this spot.

Every person is touched by some element of fine art in a way unlike any other type of art. We want you to fall in love with a painting and bring it into your home or office as a source of uplifting beauty and inspiration to enjoy every day.

We also have a studio workshop offering classes throughout the week, including small group classes with Master Artists offering advice to develop your personal style. See our schedule of classes.
