Nash Gallery’s Current Exhibition: “From Dawn to Dusk”

Evan“From Dawn to Dusk” Photorealistic oil paintings by Evan Ventris

“Growing up in rural Northeast Iowa gave me a deep appreciation for the natural beauty in landscapes. This series of Iowa landscapes allowed me to showcase the beauty I see throughout the area. Some of the references I use for this series comes from photographs I take while driving old country roads searching to find just the right setting. Many times I find myself rushing to capture that perfect image before the awe inspiring colors and shadows disappear. Other photographs I have taken from my own back yard, with the rolling corn fields of family farms spread across acres in the distance”.

Evan Ventris grew up on a farm in Clayton County and is now living and working in rural Dubuque County. His recent efforts have been on creating photorealistic oil paintings. Previously he has also created digital images and 3D sculptures. Evan received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Clarke University.

Recent group shows include The Salon Exhibition in August 2013 and Clarke University’s offsite exhibit and the Salon de Refuses during the Fall Into Art gallery tour in October 2012.

GALLERY HOURS: 12:00-4:00 PM Saturdays and Sundays.

Exhibition ends December 1rst.

“Grey Flesh” Art Exhibit and Opening June 28 – August 3

Nash GalleryNash Gallery, the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society’s art gallery encouraging, promoting, and presenting local and regional artists, announces the opening reception of it’s latest exhibit, “Grey Flesh,” Friday, June 28 at Nash Gallery, 371 Bluff St. (above Monk’s Kaffee Pub) from 7:00-9:00 p.m.  The exhibit features paintings and digital works by artist Joe Turek of Freeport, IL.

Turek is a BFA graduate of Clarke University with an emphasis in painting and minors in graphic design and philosophy.  Currently, he is an art teacher at Freeport High School.  In Dubuque, his works have been displayed in numerous Fall Into Art Exhibitions and currently at the Dubuque Museum of Art’s Biennial Juried Exhibition.

“Science, the natural world, and the human body fascinate me, thus it is the subject of my work,” states Turek. “My art tries to celebrate, explore, and depict the fundamental mysteries of what we are. I personally take the side of the materialists, that all life is just matter.”

“Grey Flesh” is Turek’s mediation on the human skull and facial muscles. “It could be the demise of mankind, a physical manifestation of psychological phenomena, or simply a formal aesthetic exploration of the flesh through a digital medium.”

Admission to opening reception and gallery is free; donations are accepted.  Light refreshments will be provided at the opening.  Regular gallery hours 12:00-4:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.  “Grey Flesh” will be on display until Saturday, August 3.
