Thatcher art at Quad Cities airport

May 14, 2013

Greg Thatcher, Maharishi School art department chairman, is showing his work along with three other Midwestern artists for the months of May and June at the airport gallery in Moline, Ill.

Thatcher was invited to submit works to the Quad Cities Arts Association last year and was subsequently chosen to exhibit his work.

The gallery is in the public waiting area and showcases both local and regional talent from the Quad Cities, eastern Iowa and western Illinois. Passengers walk by the gallery on the way to their flights. It is a venue with 80 linear feet of continuous wall space as well as three glassed exhibition areas.

Thatcher has 28 pieces from his yew tree series that includes drawings, pen-and-ink, mixed-media and giclee prints at the exhibit.

The exhibit also includes a number of new larger pieces Thatcher completed this winter. The largest piece is 5 feet in height.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me to show in a public venue the range and depth of my yew tree series,” said Thatcher. “The organizers wanted to highlight my work and encouraged me to submit many of my best pieces.”

The show opens runs until June 30.
