Melissa Merli: Local artist sending works to Springfield

If you've ever visited the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library, you know it doesn't have much space to exhibit original and other art, other than the small Illinois Gallery.

But that doesn't prevent artists from donating their works to the museum and library, as Champaign artist Siti Mariah Jackson recently did.

Studio Visit: Barbara Curtis McDonnell.

Studio Visit is a Q&A with a local artist. Here, a chat with Barbara Curtis McDonnell. The artist, who is showing her paintings at the Danville Art League through July 31, recently chatted with News-Gazette reporter Melissa Merli. The Danville Art League, 320 N. Franklin St., is open from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesdays through Saturdays and 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.
