Davenport, Iowa (February 12, 2014) – A floor-to-ceiling curtain of sculpted and fused clear glass will be on display at the Figge Art Museum beginning Saturday. Landscape: Ingalena Klenell and Beth Lipman is on loan to the Figge from the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington and will be on view in the second floor print gallery.

The exhibition is a collaboration between artists Ingalena Klenell of Sweden and Beth Lipman of Wisconsin in which pieces of glass are suspended from the ceiling and rise up from the floor to create a translucent landscape curtain. Their use of transparent glass emphasizes the romanticism inherent in 19th century landscapes, as well as the fragility of nature as we understand it today.

Showcasing cutting edge technology, Landscape is unique in the world of glass. “We are thrilled to have this extraordinary exhibition at the Figge and are eager for people to see it in person to fully appreciate all the intricate details and remarkable talent on display,” said Executive Director Tim Schiffer.

Both artists will be in the Quad Cities on February 20 and visitors are invited to the museum for a FREE Gallery Talk at 7 p.m. to hear first-hand the techniques used to create Landscape.

Sponsored locally by Andy & Debi Butler, Cottingham & Butler and SISCO, the exhibition will be on display through May 25, 2014.

Davenport, Iowa (February 10, 2014) –  Living Proof Exhibit, which celebrates the creative spirit of cancer survivors, is seeking entries for its annual exhibit to be held from August 16 to October 26, 2014 in the Mary Waterman Gildehaus Community Gallery at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport.

All cancer survivors or patients within a 150-mile radius of the Quad-Cities are eligible to submit up to five works for consideration. Entries must be received by April 22, 2014. Complete submission details are available at www.livingproofexhibit.org.

During the course of the exhibit, the Figge and Living Proof Exhibit will partner to offer programming that provides creative outlets for cancer patients and survivors. These programs will include art classes, while the theme of the September PechaKucha at the Figge is Celebrating Survivors.

“For the past four years, Living Proof Exhibit has been celebrating the creative spirit of the cancer survivor through our exhibits and art therapy classes,” said executive director Pamela Crouch. “We are thrilled to be able to showcase survivors’ artwork at the Figge.”

According to Tim Schiffer, executive director at the Figge, “the museum is always looking for distinctive ways to bring art and people together and this exhibition shows the impact that art can have in peoples’ daily lives.”

“Holding the exhibit in the community gallery at the Figge will offer residents of the Quad-Cities a greater opportunity to view these beautiful, expressive works of art,” added Living Proof Exhibit co-founder Mary Ellen Cunningham.

This exhibit is made possible by a grant from UnityPoint Health - Trinity. For information about art therapy classes or programming opportunities, please visit www.livingproofexhibit.org or call 309.781.6227.

About Living Proof Exhibit

Living Proof Exhibit is a non-profit organization that hosts an annual exhibition of art by cancer survivors and patients and also provides free art therapy classes. The exhibit celebrates the spirit and creativity of these men and women as well as the therapeutic benefits of art. Co-founders Pamela Crouch and Mary Ellen Cunningham are both breast cancer survivors. They each found great power in photography during their treatment and wanted to share their experience with other cancer patients looking for strength, so Living Proof Exhibit was born.
