Members Show

Gaslight Art Colony is proud to display our Colony Members' Show. We welcome you to the gallery to see the artwork of our members. This twice a year exhibit showcases the talent in our community. Gaslight Art Colony is seven years old and boasts over 120 members. Some of these members have chosen their "never-before-seen-at-the-gallery" artwork to be on display Saturday, September 17th through October 8th. Our show includes photography, jewelry, wood carving and all forms of paint and drawing. The show will open on Saturday from12:00-7:00 during the Marshall Autumn Festival. We hope you will stop in to meet local artists and enjoy refreshments at the Gallery.                            Members that wish to enter their work may obtain a form by clicking on the following link.

Emelie Oppman

Emelie Oppman
I think of my work as a way to explore the queered body— any body that is typically neglected by mainstream society. Investigating the anatomical issues of inanimate things that one does not typically think of as “alive” is my goal as an artist. I believe that every object in the world has the potential of being a “body”, but is overlooked just because it lacks the traditional heartbeat we use to monitor life.


Margaret Hintz

Margaret Hintz Autobiography
Both of my parents are biology nerds, so it isn’t at all surprising that my main focus in my work is the natural world. I hadn’t always had an interest in natural science; I barely got by with a C- in high school biology, and doing anything remotely related to my parents’ careers was the last thing on my mind. My main interest was in art, specifically drawing and painting, since I felt that was the only topic I exceeded in.


Margaret Hintz & Emelie Oppman

Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to showcase the work of area artists Margaret Hintz & Emelie Oppman. Their exhibit will be held August 20th to September 10th, 2016 at Gaslight Art Colony’s gallery, located in downtown Marshall, Illinois. An Artist’s Reception will be held August 20th from 6-9 p.m. CDT. There will also be a live jazz band by Marshall High School students, Fox Angus, Ben Macke, Nathan Medsker, and Rachel Morris. Everyone is invited to attend, meet Margaret & Emelie and view their artwork.
