We aren't a gallery anymore.

After a 2-year run at the Studio & Gallery in downtown Glen Ellyn, we've closed the gallery doors and moved offices. While the gallery was an exciting venture, it demanded more time and effort than we were willing to do. As much as we liked talking to customers in the evenings and on weekends, we'd rather spend our time at kid's activities and restaurants. 

Our focus is solely on corporate brand creative and photography. A business we've been in since, well, the beginning of time (almost). 

Oil Portrait Live Painting Demonstration

Last night, Glen Ellyn portrait artist David Penna had the audience in awe (or should we say ahhhhhh) as he captured the beauty of Lilah. Starting with a blank canvas, David talked about his process as he applied bold and delicate brushstrokes of oil to create the finished piece. David accepts commissions for portraits in oil, pencil, and charcoal.

Rough sketching begins the process.

artists reception April 18

We featured Amanda Bennett, mixed media and Robin Kittleson, fused glass. Amanda and Keri arrived from Nashville earlier in the day with a carload of beautiful pieces. Robin came from Michigan where she was teaching a glass workshop. Both artists showcased new works and sales were made! The event had a bit of a throwback feel as we ate kettle corn and listened to vinyl. Can you say "Journey"?

New Artists Reception March 19

Last night we featured our new artists: jewelry by Carlee Nestleberger, paintings by Gregg Butikofer, and photographs by Kerry Leibowitz. It's always great to hear them speak about their passion and how they approach their art. A portion of the evening's proceeds have been donated to Blood: Water Mission, a non-profit organization working to bring clean water and HIV clinics in eastern Africa.

Painting in the Gallery

Last night's event was like watching art being created before your eyes. Oh, wait, it WAS created before our eyes! Thanks to Mark Russell who painted a gorgeous landscape while we asked questions and drank wine. The work was auctioned at the end of the evening along with two other pieces by Mark. A portion of the proceeds was donated to The DuPage Community Foundation Arts Fund. See more photos on our EVENTS page.
