Welcome to the QuadCities.com Virtual Art Gallery!

In this feature, we’re spotlighting area artists and their work. Every Tuesday we’ll feature a new local artist.

It’s free and our way of showcasing awesome area artists and allowing them to include a link to their own online gallery or patreon!

If you’d like to be included in the gallery, just send your bio, a headshot pic of yourself and up to a half-dozen .jpgs of your art to Sean@QuadCities.com. We look forward to featuring you and your artworks in our gallery!

This week’s artist is Kevin Richard Schafer. Here’s his bio:

“Kevin Richard Schafer, who currently resides in Davenport (Iowa) is a photographer who is working on an on-going life project called “Humans from Earth”.

Loosely inspired by August Sander’s 1911 “People of the 20th Century” and Edward Steichen’s 1955 “Family of Man” he intends to photograph anyone who wants to be photographed.

The goal is to accumulate as many portraits of various individuals in an informal formal portrait setting.

He lists his influences to be Mike Disfarmer, Richard Avedon, Arnold Newman, and Annie Leibovitz. Parties interested in joining the party can contact him through (this website/his email (kevinrichardschafer@gmail.com?).”
