Event Details

In collaboration with the Peoria Historical Society, The Foster Gallery at Peoria First United Methodist Church is pleased to exhibit: – They Did More than Sketch: Historic Art by Peoria Master Hedley Waycott and His Contemporaries.

They called themselves “The Men’s Saturday Afternoon Sketch Club.” Organized by Peorian Hedley Waycott, the men met at Waycott’s Peoria Art Shop on Main Street near the Palace Theater during the late 1800s. There Waycott and his friends created art heavily influenced by European Impressionism and Pointillism.
From its collection, the Peoria Historical Society presents distinctive Hedley Waycott oils and watercolors, a few not previously or recently shown in an exhibition, and select works from Waycott’s contemporaries.
