[MAQUOKETA, IA] Maquoketa Art Experience welcomes Iowa artist Stormy Mochal this December for an exhibition of the original drawings from her recently published storybook, written by Jeanette Hopkins, entitled The Juggler. In her illustrations, Stormy explores her native Iowa landscape for inspiration for the illustrations. The Juggler’s pages are filled with the colorful simple pleasures of starry skies, country sides, farmhouses, and birds. Stormy Mochal received her degree in painting from Loras College, has taught at Northeast Iowa Community College, and is the co-owner of Outside The Lines Art Gallery in Dubuque. The Juggler, published by Ice Cube Press is her first children’s book.

Maquoketa Art Experience will host an opening reception and book signing for Stormy Mochal on Friday, December 16 from 6-8 p.m. at 124 S. Main Street in Maquoketa. The exhibit will run through January 16, 2012.
