Exhibit A Gallery

Peoria Fiber Arts Guild

Autumn on the Prairie: This week, we look at two more upcoming exhibits. Works by the Prairie Fiber Guild will be shown at the Peoria Library Art Gallery this October. Then we find ourselves at the Exibit A Gallery in October for "Double Vision: Hiram Torrasson and Rick Melby."

We travel to the Exhibit A Gallery to find paintings by Don Kettleborough. Then we find ourselves looking into the Heuser Gallery to look at Envisioned Worlds: Lithographs from the Hokes Archives. Both are great opportunities to look into the local art scene.

Sandy Fisher

This week, we're talking with Sandy Fisher about "Beginnings" -- an exhibit of her work -- at Exhibit A Gallery, at Junction City Shopping Center in Peoria. Fisher talks about her choice of medium, her collaboration with gallery owner Barbara Milaccio, and about the inspiration behind some the works on display. The exhibit opens with a reception Friday night at 5:00 p.m.. It continues through April 28th.

The Citywide Celebration of Women Artists continues with exhibits around the region. The Peoria Heights Library is exhibiting the work of 24 members of the Illinois Art League, including early members Jo Ann Bell and Pat Dale. The Picture This Gallery displays photos by owner Cheryl Dean and paper artist Susan Plott. Nearby, the Exhibit A Gallery features a number of works by women artists in the manner of an artist whose work has influenced them.
