Artspace 304's monthly newsletter invites you to exhibitions & events, promotes open calls & funding for artists, 
and shares upcoming arts & cultural activities in Southern Illinois.  



Reception Friday, June 2 

Artspace 304 is showcasing the photographs of Tom Azzarello from May 12 – June 23. These photographs, originally purchased from the artist for the Melange restaurant, were rediscovered in the construction of our Artspace 607 space. The photographs, that are completed in alternative developing and printing processes, will be displayed in a new light with this exhibition. 

Nila Tanner at The Corridor Gallery 

Impressions of Southern Illinois by Nila Tanner is on view at The Corridor Gallery until July 14. Tanner grew up in Pinckneyville, IL and currently resides in Carbondale. As a young adult, she attended painting classes with Nevins Ware, a talented painter and businessman in Pinckneyville. Her work consists mostly of landscapes of her beloved Southern Illinois. Echoing the Impressionism art movement, Tanner uses a unique color palette of blues, greens and purples  with emphasis on the fluidity of oil paint in each brush stroke. Visit The Corridor Gallery, located in the Carbondale Civic Center, Monday through Friday from 8:30am – 5pm.
