[headline] Two one-man shows scheduled

[copy] Two one-man shows, which will open Sunday, Feb. 26, at the Davenport Art Gallery, marks a Quad-City homecoming for Thomas Jackson and David Lundahl.

Jackson, a Rock Island native from Cedar Rapidds, uses watercolor and watercolor fragments arranged into a collage to attract the viewer's attention to enter his creative world.
