White Trash Gallery to open in LaSalle

LASALLE — Jenny Hoehn opened White Trash Gallery last week at 139 Gooding St. in LaSalle from 7 to 10 p.m.

Kristine’s Shower just celebrated 11 years of handmaking bath and skincare products in 2013. Hoehn began in 2002 in her home formulating soaps and bath bombs. Today Hoehn and her Kristine’s Shower team meet the demand for her natural, handmade line with the same “small batch” techniques that made Kristine’s Shower famous.

Although the pairing of the art of making bathbombs, soaps, etc., with fine art may seem somewhat unlikely, these two are determined to make it work.

White Trash Peg, as Hoehen has become known, has shown in art galleries across the United States (New York, San Francisco and other major cities), as well as internationally in Paris and Berlin.

White Trash Gallery will showcase White Trash Peg’s work as well as serve emerging and established artists in North Central Illinois and beyond.
