Quad City Arts’ Art @ the Airport presents paintings by Leah Richter and Julius Cavira, with clay sculptures by Jefferson Henshaw.
Leah Richter, of Clinton, IA, paints large oil paintings on wood panels which tell the story of her family’s adoption journey and bring awareness to children that are in foster care.
Julius Cavira, of Cedar Rapids, paints primarily urban landscapes with an emphasis on illumination. The high contrast paintings show the power of artificial illumination (street lights) and natural illumination (sun).
Jefferson Henshaw, also from Cedar Rapids, brings imagination to life with his clay sculptures creating whimsical “huts” that look like they came out of a fairy tale.
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 an hour of parking.
