Know someone getting married? You may be aware of the shift in wedding trends. People are waiting longer to get married. Average age for brides is 29 and grooms 31 years of age. Most already have acquired items traditionally purchased for shower or wedding gifts. Newlyweds now focus more on decorating their home.

January 1st, Atom Studio + Gallery launched our new wedding & gift registry to provide an original, personal, and timeless option to celebrate any special occasion.

Our gallery represents a curated selection of original art by some of the Midwest's top artists. Anyone is able to select artworks for their registry across a range of prices, styles, and mediums. You may, also, use the opportunity to have the couple select a commission piece of their choice.

We offer our clients three choices for gifting off the registry: buy an artwork, contribute an amount to an artwork ("group gifting"), or purchase a gift certificate to Atom Studio + Gallery.

Tom Awad - Remnants of Earth Art Exhibit at L&D15 PDF Print E-mail

L&D15 opens its first monthly art exhibit with local artist Tom Awad on January 10. A mixture of photographic collage, paintings and mixed media sculpture, Remnants of Earth is an investigation of matter both physical and emotional. In his artist’s statement, Awad describes his process “I work in layers. None of my pieces happen over night – they take time to evolve…the process of growth and destruction is always apparent in my work.”

There will be a reception for Tom Awad on Saturday, January 10th starting at 7pm. Hors d’ouvres and drinks will be provided. For more info: www.tomawad.net. The exhibition runs through February 8th.

Tom Awad will also be present on Sunday, January 11 from 1-4pm to give an artist talk about Remnants of Earth as part of L&D15’s ongoing Meet Your Maker series.

The Meet Your Maker series was conceived by L&D15 co-founders David Balluff and Lopeti Etu as a way to provide artists and art lovers with a forum to share ideas, techniques and information about a wide range of artistic topics. Future events include demonstrations, artist talks, and skill sharing workshops. Coffee provided.

L&D15 brings a new style of retail to the Quad Cities, featuring clothing, accessories and housewares created by local and international artists and designers. The store is located at 520 West 2nd Street in downtown Davenport. For more information, please visit http://www.landd15.com

Dear Members and Friends of the German American Heritage Center,
We would like to make you aware of a special gifting oppotunity to help us - and you - at year's end.  You may donate toward our account at the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend if you qualify as outlined here.  If you have additional questions, please contact the GAHC endowment chair, Stan Reeg at RWBaird, at (563) 445-6219.  This opportunity will vanish with the champagne bubbles at the New Year, so hurry up to meet the deadline!

Thanks to all for your support of our organization!

Director
German American Heritage Center

Special tax-free gift option for 2014

For those over age 70½, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts.

On December 19th, legislation was signed into law that extends this special opportunity for gifts completed in 2014. Amounts given in this way will count toward 2014 required IRA withdrawal amounts.

A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend free of federal income tax. There may also be state income tax savings.

To make such gifts, it is important to not withdraw funds prior to a gift, but distribute them directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charities. For those with check writing privileges on their accounts, this may be the most efficient way to make gifts directly from an IRA.

Check with us, your IRA administrator or your advisors for more information. You can also visit our Planned Giving site for more information. 

For more information please contact Barbara Melbourne, 563-326-2840 or by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
