Art @ the Airport: January & February
January and February feature works by Kelly Eddington of Monroe City, MO, Colleen McCarty-Tomlinson of Davenport, IA, and Barb McKinlay of Dubuque, IA.
Kelly Eddington creates hyper-realistic watercolor paintings. She assembles objects together that are visually interesting and notoriously difficult to render. Marbles, jewelry and glass feature prominently in her work. She likes to create juxtapositions in her painting using elements from her life; the feminine represented by baubles versus the masculine represented by a rusty fishing lure.
Colleen McCarty-Tomlinson presents her series, Architecture of Nature, inspired by the interior of Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain. After seeing the Sagrada Familia in person, she wanted to explore the organic architectural forms in through her artwork.
Barb McKinlay’s FACES collection of fused glass pieces shows the emotions, strength and beauty of women’s faces; real and imagined. Her work is made with a variety of colored art glass, which she cut and fused together using a heating process.
