WHO:             Mixed media by Andrew Au, paintings by Brent Langley
                       and sculpture by James Anthony Bearden

Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Andrew Au of Cincinnati, OH; Brent Langley of Edwardsville, IL and James Anthony Bearden of Des Moines, IA for the months of May and June.

Andrew Au presents his series, “Life Industries,” exploring the idea of products that are ‘living things, manufactured and marketed, the necessary construction being merely code that explains a sequence of events to make the organism viable.’ Influenced by science fiction, technology and animals, his artwork is intriguing and unique. Au works in a variety of mediums, including gouache paintings, screen printing, sculpture and video.







Brent Langley presents his series, “Ecology,” featuring wildlife and landscape paintings of the Americas and Europe. Langley stresses the relationship between animal and environment in his vibrant paintings. Light and shadow, intricate detail and compositional elements make each artwork an immersive experience. Langley works in oil, acrylic and watercolor.




James Anthony Bearden presents recent metal sculptures. His works range from large outdoor pieces for public spaces, to small coffee table works for the home, to colorful garden pieces. James states, “I work rhythmically with repetitive and cohesive elements. The unconscious voids reveal themselves to create a necessary tension in my work. Cutting, hammering, melting steel, bronze and copper in an investigation of volumetric form and constructionist abstraction.”

 All three artists have exhibited nationally.


Art @ the Airport in The Quad City International airport gallery is easy to find-just across from the gift shop and restaurant and before the security check-point. It never closes and you’ll pay just a dollar for parking.


The Quad City Arts Center Gallery is located at 1715 Second Avenue in the Arts and Entertainment District of Rock Island.  Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m.–5 p.m. Quad City Arts is dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the Quad City region through the presentation, development and celebration of the arts. This gallery and exhibit is generously sponsored by the Quad City International Airport.
