The photographic artist Randy Richmond has two concurrent exhibits on display now in the Quad Cities:  Verisimilitude in the Lewis Gallery at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, and The Set Table:  Forks on the Left, Metaphors on the Right at the Quad City Arts’ gallery in Rock Island.



The mixed media artist Sarah Rehmer’s solo exhibition A Tenuous Space is currently on display at the ArtSpace Gallery on the Black Hawk College campus in Moline.  Using vintage book paper, rusted paper, encaustic, oil paint, and eco-dyed fabric and paper, she explores the elusive aspects of memory, thought, and communication in ethereal works created over the past five years.

This Grammy Award winning quartet performs jazz, Latin, and contemporary music in addition to their classical work.
