Quad City Arts Center Gallery, Rock Island
July 11 - August 29, 2014
Opening Reception Friday, July 11, 7 - 9 pm

On exhibit from July 11 - August 29 will be works by Jaclyn Garlock of Clear Lake, IA, and Dean Kugler of Davenport, IA.

Garlock presents “Hang 10” a series of massive acrylic paintings depicting the historic Surf Ballroom and Museum in Clear Lake, IA. The images depict both the musicians who played there and the people who patronized the historic landmark. Garlock hopes that the images reveal the significance of the Surf Ballroom long before and long after “the day the music died.”

Dean Kugler presents his life-size and larger than life size figural sculptures. Kugler first sculpts clay maquettes and recreates the sculptures on a large scale in bronze, steel and resin. He will also present figure drawings. Kugler explores the strength and beauty found in the athletic human form.

Meet the artists on July 11 7 - 9 pm at the artist reception at the Quad City Arts Gallery in the District of Rock Island. Enjoy complimentary food and beverages.

Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Roy Cacek of Des Moines, IA and Bill Wohlford of Bettendorf, IA for the months of July and August.

Roy Cacek presents his painting series inspired by ancient mosaics and 19th century Pointillism. Cacek individually paints half-inch squares to create urban scenes, cityscapes, landscapes and portraits. The abstract nature of each painted square close-up, combined with the representational image seen at a distance, creates representational yet abstract works of art.

Bill Wohlford is an artist who combines woodcarving and photorealistic painting into unique works of art. Wohlford’s sculptural works often contain a message or make a statement for the viewer to contemplate.

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!
