Upon entering Ontarioville Art Center, visitors will see wonderful works of art on display on our first floor by local artists in a variety of media. View original oil paintings of landscapes, floral, and still life from several local professional artists. Watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastel, and additional media are represented in the two-dimensional works. In addition, you’ll find intricate jewelry creations plus additional ornaments, pens, earrings, bracelets, notecards, and other unique handmade gift items.
Also on display is a series of 6 watercolor paintings depicting the historic town of Ontarioville. Ontarioville dates back to the days of the stagecoach, where it was 27 miles from Chicago via stagecoach and was considered the first stop.
