Illinois Art League

This week, we're talking with Debra Mielke of the Illinois Art League, about their annual membership show, which is on display at the Time Gallery in East Peoria.

The exhibit features over 100 pieces, submitted by 57 different League members. Awards will be presented at an opening reception, Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.

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.
