Davenport watercolorist, Caroline England is known for her larger than life, dramatic depictions of flowers and gardens.
DeKalb artist Yale Factorâ€™s landscape paintings have been exhibited nationally and regionally for over thirty years. The detail put into each painting goes beyond what is usually captured by camera, each leaf and blade of grass is rendered with precision. The viewer is drawn in from a distance and then keeps approaching to find a completely different world depicted upon closer examination.
Davenport artist Pam Ohnemus concentrates on the vanishing landscape of the prairie in her acrylic paintings. She incorporates newspaper articles about the tallgrass prairie into some of the paintings as collage elements to add interest and information. Exquisite panoramas and vivid close-ups of native prairies reach tantalize the viewer with their beauty and textures.
Hand-blown glass works by Liquid Fire studio artists (Rock Island) will accentuate the landscape paintings.
