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 adding YOU to the gallery!


Like last week’s artist, Les Bell, today’s featured artist is also a local legend on the area art scene: Raphael Iaccarino!

Here’s Raphael’s bio:

I love painting the rainforest and have been doing so for 40 years with inspiration from my travels in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil.

A sample of my most recent work is included here.

My website www.raphaeliaccarino.com is in transition, but includes many additional images.

I can also be contacted on FaceBook (Artwork of Raphael Iaccarino) or by email riaccrino@mchsi.com.

And, here’s some of his art:
