Bettendorf, IA (December 1, 2017, 6 to 9 p.m.) Artwork from the "Art Meets the River" calendar will be on exhibit through the holidays at the Beréskin Gallery and Art Academy. The third year of the project features five local artists utilizing different art forms to further showcase the talent in the Quad Cities. "Many local artists use our environment as inspiration so it seemed fitting to represent different art mediums in the project." says project coordinator and artist Heid Brandt. "I would like to inspire the community to create and purchase local art and to be good stewards of the environment."
Contributing artists are Pat Bereskin, Brad Bisbey, Heidi Brandt, Dee Schricker and Robert Zeidler. Please see the attached for artist bios. The 2017 project received an Eddy Award from River Action. 2018 calendars and additional river-inspired work will be on exhibit and available for purchase during the exhibit. Proceeds from calendar sales will benefit River Action.
