Cox says both artists bring novel approaches to traditional genres, such as portraits and landscapes. Cooks incorporates other media and thick brush strokes into her paintings; Baldus bases her portraits on people and stories she's drawn to. Both shows continue through April 30th.</p><p></p> Fri, 04 Apr 2014 22:26:35 +0000 Nathan Irwin 21323 at http://peoriapublicradio.org Peoria Art Guild exhibits challenge viewers to re-thinking painting Peoria's Hidden Treasures - October 7, 2013 http://peoriapublicradio.org/post/peorias-hidden-treasures-october-7-2013 <p>Today, we’re looking at works on display in downtown Peoria, all participating in the city’s Celebration of Women Artists.
