Speakeasy Newest Exhibit Opening This Friday!

Speakeasy would like to invite you to the opening of their newest exhibit. Please come visit Speakeasy THIS FRIDAY, August 12th from 6:30-8pm! to see the work of Wes Frantz! 
The artwork of Wes Frantz is their current art exhibit. He resides and creates in Pekin IL.  Frantz creates incredible textured, abstract portals into his imagination and  yours too. His paintings are primarily acrylics with interesting additions of heavy texture.

Wes describes his work as "the translation of my visceral reaction to the world around me. I find comfort in symbols, metaphors, and mysteries; it is a comfort unavailable to me in straight-forwardness. My personal struggle as an artist has been finding a way to translate these symbols and metaphors into an approachable and understandable language on the canvas." Don't miss this inspiring exhibit!

Please also keep in mind that Speakeasy Art Center is a lovely backdrop for any event/occasion. It's unique and artistic flair will be sure to make it a time to remember!  For more information on renting the gallery please contact Nikole at speakeasyartcenter@hotmail.com

Artists!! Speakeasy has a few studio spaces that just became available on the 2nd floor of the Speakeasy Art Center. If you are interested please contact Nikole at
