WHAT: Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport
WHEN: July 1, 2014-August 30, 2014
WHERE: Quad City International Airport Gallery, 2200 69th Ave., Moline, IL
WHO: Paintings by Roy Cacek and woodcarving by Bill Wohlford.
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Roy Cacek of Des Moines, IA and Bill Wohlford of Bettendorf, IA for the months of July and August.
Roy Cacek presents his painting series inspired by ancient mosaics and 19th century Pointillism. Cacek individually paints half-inch squares to create urban scenes, cityscapes, landscapes and portraits. The abstract nature of each painted square close-up, combined with the representational image seen at a distance, creates representational yet abstract works of art.
Bill Wohlford is an artist who combines woodcarving and photorealistic painting into unique works of art. Wohlford’s sculptural works often contain a message or make a statement for the viewer to contemplate.
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 $1 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.
