Local artists have been featured through several exhibits promoted through Alton's Dark Horse Artworks, and one local artist will be featured at a show this weekend after being "discovered" at another show last year. Jorge Medina was one of the more popular artists at the Redemption Art Show, and was offered the chance to headline a show this weekend at the Old Bakery Beer Company.
The show is a production of local artist Eric Stauffer and his venture, Dark Horse Art Works. He tells The Big Z Medina combines classical artwork with what some would consider graffiti or urban art.

He says Medina will be doing live paintings throughout the show, auctioning them off at the end of each day. The Wyzek Art show will be held Friday and Saturday from 5 - 10pm and on Sunday from noon - 6pm.
