Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to show ‘Retirement Art’ by artist Frank Bell. Frank shows great enthusiasm for drawing and painting and is very thankful for all of those who inspire his art. Here are some of his inspirations. The bulk of the drawings and paintings in this Exhibition were completed after my retirement from Indiana State University. I have enjoyed drawing and painting throughout my life and have been encouraged by and have learned so much from Gaslight Colony artists, especially the participants of the Thursday art group. While I enjoy working with pastels, acrylics, ink, gouache, and watercolor, I spend the most time drawing from life using pencil and sanguine oil leads. I admire the work of all the Colony artists.


Pork Tenderloin Drive Thru

Thank You Marshall Community for attending our Pork Drive Thru! We sold 400 meals and unfortunately had to send some folks away hungry due to being sold out. We really appreciate the support that everyone showed us for this event. Thank you to Edgar County Meat Locker for providing us with the delicious pork tenderloins.  We hope to plan another drive thru this fall!img 01153214 240x180pork

This will consist of two classes, one for making and one for glazing. Glazing will be on July 25th and 26th. The classes combined are $20 per student. Additional Classes for K-2 will be July 24th and Aug. 1st, and 3-6 will be July 21st and July 28th. These classes are already full but we will hopefully be able to add more this fall.
