Gaslight Art Colony is dedicated to broadening an appreciation of the Arts by providing opportunities that promote awareness, participation and understanding through fine arts exhibitions, classes and workshops.

March Colony Show

Gaslight Art Colony welcomes you to see the artwork of our members. This twice a year exhibit showcases the talent in our community. Gaslight Art Colony is almost eight years old and has over 130 members. Some of these members have chosen their “never-before-seen-at-the-gallery” artwork to be on display Saturday, March 17th through Saturday, April 14th. Our show includes photography, jewelry, metalwork, ceramics, and all forms of paint and drawing. We will be having another drawing for a free children’s class. There will also be a $1 off coupon for the Main Street Supper Club for all who come to the opening. The gallery will be open for a reception for the artists on March 17th from 5-8 p.m. Please join us for a delightful evening with our local artists.


Colony Club Display at First Bank

The Colony Club, sponsored by Gaslight Art Colony, created an art display to share with the community. The Mythical Creature display can be viewed at First Bank, 610 N Michigan Ave. in Marshall, Illinois. Larry Strohm is very supportive and pleased to accept the student art work to display at the bank. The students worked after school at Gaslight Art Colony on sketching and creating a Mythical Creature of their choice. The mixed media display includes clay figurines, acrylic painting and colored pencil sketches. The club is always looking for new members and is open to all high school age teens. The students will work on their next project for First Financial Bank in Marshall. The finished product will take several weeks to complete. They look forward to making the next presentation in the spring. The club members are Danny Beirbaum, Zia Beltz, Leighton Beltz, Evelyn Burress, Shawn Durham, Amber Griguhn, Maddie Oberlee , Kyla Schaef and Brayden Shuck. They invite you to visit the lobby of First Bank to view their art work.
