Grassroots Gallery Art Exhibition


Last Friday, my husband Randon and I exhibited the local pieces in our art collection at an independent artist-run project space in Peoria, IL called Project 1612. We are so honored to have had this opportunity; it was an incredible experience!

People SHOWED UP. And we're so glad they did – thank you, Peoria! Project 1612 has created something meaningful for the art community in Peoria. You can read about that here.

The art included in the exhibition's one-night-only show are pieces we have collected over the last five years, beginning in 2013 when we moved to Peoria's historic High Street and connected with the local art community. It's a small part of a collection we're excited to watch grow.
