ICON Gallery- 58 N. Main St. David Kupferman -Light Waves/Moments of Being. Acrylic paintings on canvas and paper. Kupferman’s work is the subject of a solo show at ICON Gallery in Fairfield through July 23. A large grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) through the Iowa Arts Council has helped launch Light Waves: Moments of Being. Kupferman aims to offer viewers an exhibition that reflects peace, joy, and harmony, a beautiful experience that transcends the contagious fear and divisiveness brought about by the pandemic. On display are about 50 colorful paintings, with most pieces representing recent work from a series begun last summer. These acrylic paintings are lyrical abstracts on canvas and paper of various sizes. With a broad stroke, Kupferman describes his paintings as “celebrations of the mystery, magnitude, and dynamism of life. They are expressions of the infinite flow of light and the expansion of inner consciousness through free flowing color, movement, and geometric compositions.”

Mother Divine Church- 51 N. Court St.- Richard Trice Images surreal and realistic from Jefferson County Park. Art walk Friday. May 6th 6:30 until 9:30 pm and Saturday May 7th and Sunday May 8th, from 1pm -4pm both days. Information from Richard Trice- “Within nature, in the many forms of light and shadow we sense something bigger and vaster than ourselves. Over many years, with photography I have attempted to capture these moments in nature which reveal this eternity. In some cases, I rearrange several of these photos together to create another different image which is familiar. Although familiar, the image is at the same time, unfamiliar. This causes a positive leap of our imagination My purpose here is to explore visual associations which help us to think in a more intuitive manner. In a way, encouraging the creative problem-solving capacity of our innate sense of wonder. Realistic and surrealistic imagery. Looking at many of these images together is a grand and joyful experience”.
