Karen Sue Galleries

Updated: Jun 20, 2018


Karen Eilts, opened her business, Karen Sue Galleries, in August 2017! As an art teacher, Karen's students recognized her great talent, and encouraged her to use it to teach others as well. Karen Sue Galleries provides artwork for sale in her Downtown Bloomington and Uptown Normal locations, in addition to offering classes in drawing and painting. She also is taking on commission work for individuals and businesses. After joining the Art Circle, as well as the First Friday Art Walks, Karen decided to formalize her business, and visited the SBDC to learn how. Karen shares that marketing her business, especially with contract work, was a challenge that she encountered and that the SBDC was able to help with. Through her work, Karen hopes that the Bloomington-Normal community will begin to recognize their own creativity and expand their innovative ideas through creating artwork. She also hopes to work with employers to promote this by placing original artwork in businesses throughout the community.
