FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE— June 16, 2016
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Astrid Bennett of Iowa City, IA and Jay Stratton of Bettendorf, IA for the months of July and August
Astrid Bennett presents The Color Cloud Series, an installation hung with monofilament featuring exquisite hand-dyed fabrics. Her pieces billow like parachutes and are suspended from the ceiling. They overlap and shift with the air, resulting in dynamic compositions. The “clouds” range from complex to simple. Bennett dyes, paints, prints and assembles all pieces herself from lightweight cotton fabric.
Jay Stratton is a talented woodcarver and furnituremaker. Stratton presents an impressive array of art furniture, sculptures and vessels carved to accentuate the grain, shape and grace of each piece of wood.
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.
