The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is pleased to showcase the artwork of local artist Christine Detwiler.  An active member of the Effingham Art Guild, Christine has chosen to entitle her show: “Animals on Vacation.”  Christine’s work will be on display until January 31 , 2019.

As an artist, Christine enjoys painting landscapes and sharing her perspective of God’s beautiful creation. Her show consists of a mixture of various scenes that utilize acrylic, pastel, watercolor and oil mediums.

Primarily self-taught, Christine shared that she has been painting off and on since she was in grade school. 

Besides showing and selling her work locally, Christine has been the participant in a variety of juried shows. Her greatest accomplishments in the field of art so far have been a Merit Award from the Swope Art Museum, being part of the Tarble Art Biennial Exhibition at Eastern Illinois University and a Best in Show Award at Lake Land College.
