About Gallery 510 Art & Framing

a supportive art community where artists can find fellowship and encouragement

Gallery 510 was established in May 1991 by a group of artists from Central Illinois. This professional art group aims to raise awareness of visual fine arts by providing original, regional artwork, as well as exhibition space, and educational opportunities. We exist as a supportive art community where artists can find fellowship and encouragement. We offer a gift shop for original art, prints, cards, jewelry, unframed work and other items created by members & guests

“Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.”
