PERU — Sue Gillio has announced that the Music Suite 408 “Paint Box” gallery will host an exhibit opening and reception for the whimsical artist, Angie Cornelius, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday. The exhibit opening is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available.

Cornelius, of Lonesome Road Studio Art and Illustration, uses a 30-year background in graphic design to successfully bridge the gap between fine art and commercial design. Her unique marker art incorporates elements of poster art, illustration, hand-lettering and sometimes digital art to illustrate food, flora and fauna in a one-of-a-kind style. She lives in the Sheridan area on a gravel road (The Lonesome Road!) with her husband, and she is also the owner of Succulent Bath & Body.

The exhibit will run through May. Paint Box gallery is located in the west wing of the Westclox Building, Peru, and gallery hours are 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 3 to 6 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, call 815-223-4408.
