Father / Daughter Art Show Takes Viewers ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’
LeClaire’s Alan and Kristin Campbell are taking local artists, fathers and daughters, “Down the Rabbit Hole.”
That Alice in Wonderland theme runs through the father/daughter art show the pair have assembled to run through August at LeClaire’s Mississippi River Distilling Company, 303 N. Cody Road, featuring both paintings and mixed media.
While much of the work does slant toward Alice in Wonderland, there are also Matrix-related and more abstract pieces.
This is the first time the pair have had the opportunity to show their work together. Their pieces will be on display throughout the month of August. The public is invited to attend an artist reception on August 14 from 1 – 2:30 p.m. at the distillery.
Kristin Campbell is a Camanche, Iowa, High School graduate. She earned her BFA from the University of Iowa and her MFA from California State University at Fullerton.
Kristin is currently living in the Los Angeles area working in theatre design and teaching college classes in the subject. She has worked at the Olney Theatre outside Washington D.C., at the Des Moines Ballet and on several theatre projects in and around Los Angeles. She’s the painter in the family and will be presenting her paintings created on both illustration paper and canvas.
Alan Campbell currently lives in Davenport and has received several awards through the years for his photography work. He has also designed stage sets for a number of awards shows around the country. He operates under the name of One Eyed Annie and currently shows his work at Bucktown Center for the Arts in downtown Davenport.
He stepped into the world of multi-media art three years ago with an emphasis on upcycling, creating pieces out of items that might otherwise be discarded. This particular show features a number of pieces created from old pallet wood, wine corks and other miscellaneous parts.
The reception is free of charge. For more information go to www.facebook.com/oneeyedannies and check out the event page.
