WHAT: Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport
WHEN: January 5-February 28, 2016
WHERE: Quad City International Airport Gallery, 2200 69th Ave., Moline, IL
WHO: Blown glass by Hot Glass, Prints by Amy Dobrian, and pastels by Floriana Hayes
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents the work of Hot Glass, Davenport, IA, Amy Dobrian of Iowa City, IA, and Floriana Hayes of Urbandale, IA during January and February.
Amy Dobrian presents a series of monotype prints featuring images of cranes. Dobrian views the crane as symbolic messengers between humans and our fragile planet, “an indicator species for the health of our planet”. Her large scale monotypes are largely influenced by Japanese decorative arts, featuring Chiyogami collage and direct drawing. Each work is unique and unrepeatable.
Floriana Hayes presents her exquisitely rendered still life series, “Marbles”. Hayes is an award winning artist originally from Chicago. She works primarily in pastel and pen and ink. Whether depicting a landscape or a bowl of fruit, Ms. Hayes attention to detail and eyefor color make every piece impressive to behold.
Hot Glass, Inc. is a Davenport studio conceived and facilitated by Moline art teacher, Joel Ryser. Hot Glass offers a unique model for using art as a means for intervention with youth. Teens are faced with a lack of positive activities for their age group. At Hot Glass, students develop essential skills including teamwork, communication, planning and decision making, as well as specific job related applications. The displayed work is the result of teamwork of students and professionals.
