WHAT: Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport
WHEN: November 3, 2014-January 4, 2015
WHERE: Quad City International Airport Gallery, 2200 69th Ave., Moline, IL
WHO: Photography by Michael Johnson and wood creations by the Quad City Wood Turner’s Club
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Photography by Michael Johnson of Mount Carroll, IL along with wood creations by the Quad City Wood Turner’s Club for the months of November and December.
Michael Johnson presents his photographic series entitled “Interior Light.” Johnson utilizes silver gelatin photography documenting the interiors of rural buildings and barns. For roughly 40 years Johnson has been exploring how the specific qualities of light are rendered by analog photography. His expressive images are the result of long exposure time as well as non-standard development techniques.
The Quad Cities Wood Turners Club is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners and is composed of wood turners from eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois. The chapter meets for the purpose of getting to know other turners and sharing ideas. Meetings include mentoring sessions, critiques, shop tips, demonstrations and panel discussions of turning techniques and tools. The art of woodturning has gained popularity and critical acclaim in recent years. The club provides members with a place to learn new techniques and enjoy some friendly competition that keeps members striving to create ever more complex and beautiful objects.
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.
