We're the small-town gallery with the big-city feel
Unique. Dazzling. Impressive. Those are the words visitors often use to describe The Vault Art Gallery in downtown Tuscola, Illinois. The Vault is unique in that it is an artist-owned cooperative with more than 50-artist owners, all of whom live in Central Illinois. We even offer shares to the public as a way of showing their support of the arts. We are the small-town gallery with the big-city feel.
Art is for everyone
The Vault Art Gallery is located in historic downtown Tuscola, Illinois, and gets its name from the massive bank vault located behind the front counter. We feature local artists who have their work for sale in a variety of mediums, from paintings to sculpture to photography to jewelry to ceramics to fiber art and much more. We also have vintage and antiques. Our philosophy is that art should be for everyone and we strive to feature artwork in an affordable price range. We also believe that art will make you happy. So, visit us and get ready to smile.
Buying Art Supports Artists
When you buy locally made artwork, not only are you getting a unique, handcrafted item, but you are helping to support the creative dreams and endeavors of the artist, as well as perpetuating the "created and made in America" conviction.
