While local artists have a long history of being welcomed at Jacoby Arts Center, a new project hopes to bring the art to other locations in Downtown Alton.  Tonight from 5-8pm, Jacoby and Spirits Lounge are teaming up to host the 'Local Art, Local Businesses' show at Spirits on State Street.  It is a production of local artist Eric Stauffer (pictured) and his new venture, Dark Horse Art Works.

Stauffer says he is also working on a project of his own.

Stauffer comments

But tonight's show will feature the works of Sharon Hopper, Ken Church, Tina Kitchell, Dominic Angarano, Andrew Pilla, and Stauffer.  There is an Art Talk scheduled for 6:00, and food and drink will be available.
