      Since February of 2016, Art in the Afternoon
      has been a monthly showcase for Iowa City
      area artists to present their artwork and
      display their skills. These programs are free
      and open to the public. This summer we will
      add to the growing list with four remarkable
      artists.
      7/21: Jeff Allen
      Jeff Allen founded the Plein Air Painters of
      Iowa and is a past member of the Plein Air
      Painters of Chicago, artist member of the
      Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts of
      Chicago, Iowa Artists, and the Cedar Rapids
      Drawing Group. Jeff explains, “Painting is
      a process of problem solving. Problems of
      light, shadow, composition, form, rhythm,
      along with what you want to say. If you ask
      yourself the right questions while standing
      in front of the canvas, you can create a
      painting that the viewer can connect with.
      Words alone are not enough.” Jeff’s work
      has been described as bold, yet soft; pastoral
      with a certain dreamlike, ethereal quality;
      and impressionistic realism. Jeff draws his
      inspiration from the Iowa landscape and the
      group of friends that surround him.
