Creative Soul's current featured artist, Stephen Wilson, is an emerging regionalist photographer. Wilson explores rural communities and once-thriving urban neighborhoods for reminders of humanness, culture, and community. 

 

"My principal interest is discovering the artfulness of those things around me that make up the region where I have lived for 67 years - Central Illinois," Wilson said. "While I am often drawn to architecture, I photograph anything that attracts my attention. An avowed design junkie, I seek out the time-worn, the curious and funky, and sometimes a bit of Americana."

 Monarch release!*

National Prairie Day
June 4

We are thrilled to welcome the Central Illinois Monarch Task Force back to the gallery. Hold a caterpillar, see butterfly art, make a project, and be on hand for the launch of something cool (besides the butterflies.) Butterfly releases at 12:15 and 2:00.

 

*As always our monarchs are locally raised so we are dependent on Mother Nature! Caterpillars? Well, those are guaranteed.
