Lecture and Book signing with artist Fred Easker

Join us for a lecture and book signing of artist Fred Easker's new book "Connected to Place & Landscape Paintings" which is a compilation of his extensive and exquisite work. Fred Easker’s landscape paintings offer an extraordinary view into what is too often considered ordinary. Most often drawing on familiar sites in the backroads of his native Eastern Iowa, he celebrates both the aesthetics and the character of place and offers a keen meditation on the power, vulnerability, and eloquence of land and our relationship to it.

Easker paints from photographs he takes on “discovery” drives, but his finished images are more than painted photographs. The final images are meticulous in their detail, but more painterly than they appear at first glance.
