Dig into the rich culture of Dubuque at the latest art exhibits opening this season.

Iowan Artists

Gallery C will be displaying the works of Iowan artists Abigail Butcher and Wendy Romero in the exhibit Two Perspectives, on display until May 21, 2017. Butcher’s art includes drawing and painting in juxtaposition of bright color with sold and bold paints with fast paced messy graphite marks and random drips of paint.  Romero’s art emphasizes traditional painting practices and drawing. She also uses hand dyed textiles, handmade paper, cheesecloth and metal leafing. Want to meet the creator, an artist talk is scheduled for May 5 at 6:30 p.m. with Wendy Romero.

Self Portraits

The Dubuque Museum of Art will feature The Artist Revealed: Two Centuries of Portraits from Cezanne to Dylan, on display May 12 – August 6, 2017. While the cell phone camera has allowed us to take selfies since the year 2000, the desire to have our own picture dates much further in the past. This exhibit highlights the yearning to picture ourselves from 1857 to 1992 in varying media and styles, featuring the work of Norman Rockwell, Anders Zorn, Leonard Baskin, Edward Steichen, Chuck Close and Milton Avery.

Student Work

The students of the University of Dubuque express their creative design acumen during the EDGE Exhibit, April 17 – April 28, 2017. Students will display their logos, websites, printed materials and brochures. The Best of Show will be purchased by the University for its permanent display. A reception is scheduled for April 25, 2017 from 3 – 4 pm.
