Ron Durnavich is a Des Moines native and is artistically rooted in the Des Moines Art Center, Drake, and Grandview. This local path has lead him to create colorful “EMOTIONAL/ABSTRACTION paintings meant to take the viewer on a journey while allowing for alternative interpretations. Check out his paintings at the Urbandale Public Library Art gallery throughout the month of June. Virtually he can be reached here.
Cindy Skeie's photography gets up close and personal with nature literally. Her macro photography takes the nature we see everyday and elevates it to a almost surreal world of dew drops, plants, animals, and fungus. Intensely close and beautiful.
On May 20th there will be an Opening for the Urbandale High School End of Year Art Show form 5 - 7 at the Urbandale Public Library Art Gallery. Locate at the Urbandale Public Library. Everyone is invited to attend and see a nice sampling of some of the great art produced during the 2012-2013 school year. Due to limited space, this is just a sampling from several different disciplines. We wish we could include works from every art student, but that task would be both daunting and too massive to be contained within the gallery.
Chapters has agree to stay open late incase you like your art with a shot of java.
Here is a more comprehensive look at the art, programs and the artists showing at the UPLAG.
