Student Artist of the Month at Gallery 510

Gallery 510 Art & Framing will be featuring one student from a Central Illinois high school each month along with the professional featured artist at the gallery. Before the gallery artist begins to talk about their work at each First Friday Gallery Walk, we will introduce the “Student of the Month” and show their piece of artwork that will remain on display throughout the month.
