Illinois Art League will present its annual Membership Show beginning August 10 at the Time Gallery, located in Fondulac Bank – Clocktower, East Peoria. Show hours are during regular banking hours, and the show will be on display through September 28.

IAL’s Membership Show will feature original works of art by central Illinois artists, each personally exhibiting their own creative concepts and original designs. This kaleidoscope of fine art will include works in oils, acrylics, watercolors, sculpture, drawings, prints, pastels, photography, jewelry-making, ceramics, wood, glass/fiber/metal, and mixed media. This art exhibition is a competition for professional, semi-professional, and amateur artists. Awards and honorable-mention ribbons will be given in the following general categories: Under Glass, Not Under Glass, Three-Dimensional Art, and Photography. Many of the pieces will be available for purchase. Show admission is free. Due to COVID-19, there will not be a reception this year, and visitors will be asked to maintain social distancing.
