The Final Friday at Bucktown Center for the Arts (225 E. 2nd St., Davenport) is an "End of Summer Fling," from 6 to 9 p.m., featuring an "Art Matters" sale in Suite 103.|
All the gallery owners in the building were invited to sell their art in that one location and "really showcase how local art matters," MidCoast Fine Arts board president Amy Orr said this week. "This is an opportunity for MidCoast to highlight some amazing artists we have in the Bucktown galleries, and it's a variety -- photography, sculpture, paintings. That alone is the cool part."
"Sometimes, people are put off by art, they don't know a lot about it," she noted. "The point of MidCoast and even this 'Art Matters' show (is) the only thing that matters is if you like it."
Final Friday attendees can also talk with the Bucktown artists, including at the first-floor ATOM studio + gallery, where you can meet art teachers and sign up for fall classes. There are classes for all ages and skill levels. The night will also feature live music from Mark Brown Acoustics.
ATOM is welcoming Dan Johnson of Davenport to the gallery. An Iowa State University graduate, Mr. Johnson primarily works with acrylic and ink to fuse organic styles and subjects with the human figure. His show will begin Friday and continue through Sept. 20.
