Quad City International Airport Gallery, 2200 69th Ave., Moline, IL
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Kimberlee Rocca of North Liberty, IA; Amber Williams of Davenport, IA and Dale Divoky of Fairfield, IA for the months of September and October.
Kimberlee Rocca presents her mixed media series of raw yet refined abstract works utilizing metal, paper, paint and mosaic. In her work circles and spheres can represent power, influence or protection while in other works these same shapes may represent chaos and boundaries. Rocca carefully selects bold colors, simple shapes and delicate details creating an energetic representation of spiritual journeys, personal narratives, transformation, rebirth and connectivity.
Amber Williams is a collage artist presenting her series “Into the Mountains”. The series consists of dynamic patterned landscapes made entirely of security envelopes and magazine copy. Williams cuts and assembles all of the paper by hand. Williams was inspired by the Pacific Northwest while creating this series.
Dale Divoky is a clay sculptor presenting a series inspired by natural forms. Divoky has a fascination with nature’s forms, their relationships and eloquence of dimension. His lyrical sculptures of Koi fish are figurative while the surface modeling allows for the illusion of graceful movement. Divoky believes that clay and all of the processes associated with it uniquely suit his sculptural endeavors.
Art @ the Airport Gallery never closes and non-ticketed passengers can drop by the airport to see the exhibits, with just one dollar for parking. The gallery is located in the guest waiting area across from the airport restaurant. Meet a friend for lunch and enjoy the art in this beautiful gallery!
