Artists and those who are interested in art can attend a meeting about creating an art gallery in Northpark Mall for local artists to display and sell their art at 1 pm on Saturday, Feb. 29, in suite 203, Bucktown Center for the Arts, 225 Second Street, Davenport, Iowa.
The leaders of the meeting, Barb and Jim Toner have lived in the Quad Cities for more than 30 years. Barb has been a fused glass artist for about six years and has sold her pieces in Bucktown and The Artery.
These two art centers will close March 31, and many of the artists have few options to sell their art in the Quad Cities. A gallery in Northpark Mall will fill a hole in the Quad Cities art community created by the closing of these two centers.
For more information, contact Barb Toner, mctague360@hotmail.com563-320-3625.
