Featured July Artist: Steve Meadows


steve2Gaslight Art Colony welcomes you to view the artwork of Palestine, Illinois artist Steve Meadows. The exhibit will be at the gallery July 19th –August 9, 2014. An Artist's Reception will be held on Saturday, July 19th from 6-9 p.m.
Steve Meadows says, "I can't throw anything away." In his artwork everyday objects are recycled into an unending parade of creatures and characters. "Faces peer out at me from the most mundane collection of materials...teapots, brushes, shovels and discarded rusty junk are soon reborn."

Canvas at the Colony

Gaslight Art Colony has a new class offering!  “Canvas at the Colony” is for those who have always wanted to try their hand at painting.  There are no special skills required.  In one evening you will take home a painting that you created by following guided instructions from a local artist.  You can attend a scheduled class or have a private party with your friends.  The fee is $35.00, if paid in advance or $45.00 at the door.   Contact the gallery at 217-808-2115 for the date of the next class!
