Artist Demonstrations


The Gateway East Artists Guild is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the fine arts in the Metro-East area by providing educational opportunities, community art exhibits, and fellowship for area artists. Members include a diverse group of art enthusiasts from beginners to professionals in almost every artistic medium, as well as those who wish to support the arts without creating their own. Each year GEAG hosts a regularly-scheduled series of workshops, paint-outs, and other art activities, publishes a monthly newsletter, awards a college scholarship and student awards, performs community service, and sponsors at least one major competitive exhibit with generous prizes.

Please check the website for the dates and times of the monthly meetings at the SWIC/PSOP Building, 201 N. Church St., Belleville, IL, and for a members-only contest, a critique, and an educational program with demonstrations or other art activity. All are welcome. For membership information or a prospectus for upcoming exhibits, please visit: GEAG.net
