The River Arts Center features"A Garden of Art" exhibit with the art of David Kracht and Susan Irey. A reception for the artists will take place on Sunday, June 25, from 1-4 PM with an artists' talk at 2PM. David's large florals are known to many in the area, inspired by Susan's floral gardening. illustrations for an upcoming children's book are on display as well as Susan's orchids. The artists collaborated on the illustrations with Susan doing the drawing and David the painting. Inspired by their grandson's interest in wildlife in their yard, game cameras captured the action and serve as reference for the drawings. The couple met in art school at the University of Iowa and later married. Susan has a dental practice in Clinton and David continues to work on his art. The public is welcome at no charge.
