Peoria Art Guild

  • Here are 3 things to do for the weekend of Feb. 2 through Feb. 4, 2024, curated by WCBU's Meagan Ruger-Smith. You can find more coverage on our Out & About - Arts & Music page or by subscribing to WCBU's Weekend Fanfare email newsletter, which goes out every Friday.
  • For wood carving artist Jim Arnold, a desire to learn has driven him throughout his life; now, as an instructor at the Peoria Art Guild, he’s hoping to foster that love of learning in students of all ages.
  • On this week’s episode of Out and About, host Jenn Gordon talks with Shannon Cox and Heather Brammeier about the exhibits now on display at the Peoria Art Guild.TTAG (Third Thursday Art Group) is a diverse group of artists. They create in various media and eclectic imagery. The exhibiting members include Connie Andrews, S.J. Boyd, Sherri Burritt, Ken Clubb, Bob Doucette, Christopher Gauthier, Reid Hansen, Barbie Perry, David Seay, Steph Van Doren, and Peggy West. This group of professional fine artists are linked together through their individual creative curiosity and their desire to discuss ideology, process, and current art trends. TTAG offers support and critique of each other’s artwork, making each stronger in developing their body of work.I Found U Collective is a group of artists from all over the world, including Peoria's own Heather Brammeier. Brammeier was the intermediary for creating the artworks in I Found U by the River. She took a walk with her camera along the Illinois River and snapped photos continuously during that walk. At times, she turned around to capture the view behind her, at other times she zoomed in on details in the scene in front of her. Each artist selected the photos they were to manipulate, draw on, collage with, or otherwise transform into a new image of the Peoria Riverfront.The process of interpreting a scene from a distant location is what I Found U Collective calls roving reflection. An artist creates photographic imagery from their location to share with the other artists. These artists interact with the images artistically, through digital manipulation, collage, drawing, painting, or a combination of approaches. The results are then exhibited in the location of the original photo documentation, where residents enjoy seeing the interpretations and investigations based on their hometown.For more information on these exhibits visit Peoria Art Guild.
