Description

We are a non-profit visual art gallery located in Galesburg,IL, a town of 33,000. The building we occupy is over one hundred years old. The lower level is used to exhibit work in both a gallery space and gift shop. The ceiling is the original tin. The gallery features track lighting and soft grey carpeted walls. The gallery is a modern space which the town of Galesburg can be proud of. We hold 11 exhibitions a year in our gallery and have over 100 regional artists represented in our gift shop.

History

The Galesburg Civic Art Center has been a part of the Galesburg community since 1923. We moved to our downtown Galesburg location in 1965. We have been collecting artwork since that time we have opened. We are committed to exhibiting the visual arts in our area. Each year we hold a national juried exhibition and competition, GALEX ,as well as feature new and established artist in our annual Members and Friends show. 2004 will mark the 18th year we have held "Art in the Park", a one day art fair held in Standish Park Arboretum in downtown Galesburg.
