We feature twelve exhibitions per year in our two gallery spaces.  Among these is our Holiday Treasures Exhibition and Sale
and the oldest amateur exhibition in the state.  Our schedule includes a mix of local artists and nationally recognized artists

Art making is too valuable to be left to the professionals! We offer classes for children and adults, taught by trained 
professional artists. Paintings, drawing, ceramics and new media are explored.  Our small class sizes place an emphasis 
on personal attention, skill building and fun.


We organize two great community arts festivals. The Sugar Creek Arts Festival is held in Uptown Normal and features about 140 artists, live music and several food options.  More than 22,000 people attend this event and it has become a community treasure. The Spring Bloom Arts Festival is held indoors at ISU's Bone Student Center Ballroom featuring about 80 artists.
