R.E. Henry - Oil painting
Henry usually paints landscape scenes from his life, but has surprised everyone with an abstract self portrait, rendered in his trademark bold colors.
John McGlinn - Acrylic painting
McGlinn currently has a body of work showing here at Taag in the Lower Gallery. His visual theme has long been
space-stacking, an abstract form.
Bella Vine - Oil painting & sculpture
Vine tells stories with every artwork and has not disappointed with the selection at the Figge, an oil painting of a special forest.

Taag Gallery is sponsoring Iowa City artist solo exhibition
"Our normal vantage point is on the surface of the earth utilizing a multi-point perspective, i.e. the Renaissance window: accurate, natural, well-practiced in all forms of visual endeavor. But, there is a more primitive, archaic form of spatial depiction that is child-like in the placement of objects above, not beyond, to represent distance from the observer. This orientation has allowed me to map my abstract intentions onto invented scenes that recently have incorporated fences, trees, clouds, etc. in a purposeful, if slightly artificial, manner. "
