Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Jeff Little of Bloomington, IL and members of the Quad City Woodturners Club for the months of November and December.
Jeff Little has spent many hours walking through the woods and fields of his native state of Illinois. His admiration of nature and the Midwestern landscape is clear in his vibrant paintings. His technique creates a visual rhythm, relating to the sounds and feeling of being outdoors.
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.
In addition to the art on display in the gallery, three large, stainless steel sculptures by Tom Newport are on exhibit on the median outside the airport. This is the first time that outdoor sculpture has been a part of Art @ the Airport.
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.

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.
