“Treasures of Oak Leaf,” an annual exhibit of original paintings, photos, drawings and collage artwork by Oak Leaf Artist Guild members, opens Friday, February 28, and will remain on display through April 11 at O’Fallon’s Cultural Arts Center Gallery in the Renaud Spirit Center (RSC) recreation complex, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon, Missouri 63368.

“We call it ‘Treasures of Oak Leaf’ because members are allowed to show one picture each, and we don’t require that it be painted within the last three years, so it could be an older piece, a ‘treasure,’” said Annette McGarrahan, spokesperson for the guild. “Our show this year has a wide range of interesting images, including a fantastical pink tree, bright red peppers, rain-drenched glasses, colorful landscape scenes and more. People will enjoy seeing this show!”
