The Des Moines Art Center and three local galleries have new exhibits this month:
“Manos”: The Des Moines Art Center is displaying a selection of Latin American art from its permanent collections. Find the exhibit in the Art Center’s John Brady Print Gallery.
“Figure & Form”: Moberg Gallery is featuring works from contemporary female artists such as Swoon, Adele Renault, Alyson Khan and Goizane Esain. Organizers say “Swoon’s mixed-media narrative portraits are in visual conversation with Renault’s new multicolored paintings of feathers in acrylic and spray paint, Khan’s pastel and black orderly abstracts, and Esain’s large-scale photo slices of spring botanicals.”
“Annual Landscape Show”: Olson Larsen Galleries’ popular yearly exhibition featuring works depicting nature is back, showcasing artists such as Gary Bowling, Christine Carr, John Preston, Jean Gumpeer and Mat Kelly, among others. The show opens on May 28.
“A Song of Becoming”: Liz Lidgett Gallery and Design has opened a group show featuring 30 works by five artists: Kristen Abbott, Lesley Grainger, June Street Studio, Kate Blomquist and Taelor Fisher.
