The faces of nearly 200 eastern Iowa residents will go on display at the Figge Art Museum this weekend. "Portrait of Maquoketa," features oil portraits painted by Rose Frantzen in 2006.

Previously it's been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC and the State Historical Museum in Des Moines, and was purchased by the Figge for its permanent collection 3 years ago.

Portrait of Maquoketa opens Saturday, and continues through early February. An opening reception with Frantzen is set for Sunday afternoon. 
 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
