Blepta is Czech for chatterbox, and it was a nickname Sara's grandpa called her when she was little. It’s the perfect name for this art studio within PIVO Brewery, where friends gather to relax and be cheerful chatterboxes together. Art created in the studio is for sale in the retail shop, or if you would like to create your own work of art check out the options for social art classes where you can paint and sip!

Meet the artist

Sara Neuzil of Blepta Studios loves creating art and helping other people create art of their own. Her life-long dream of being a full-time artist is now a reality, and she couldn’t be happier about that! Born and raised on a century farm in Winneshiek County, Sara traveled the globe thanks to her husband Craig’s Air Force career. Now that they have returned to Northeast Iowa, all those experiences and opportunities are reflected in her work.
