GENESEO – Greg Wallace of Walnut has joined DeBrock Galleria, 106 N. State St.

According to a news release, Wallace describes himself as a illustrator and writer “from the frozen tundra of northern Illinois.” His comic strip “Nothing is not Something,” a semi-autobiographical chronicle of a young daydreamer who doodles his way through life, appears online at www.gocomics.com, a division of the Universal Press Syndicate.

Wallace’s other artistic pursuits include drawing, painting, airbrushing, sign painting and woodburning. He and his wife, Joyce, live in Walnut with their children, Jack and Izzy.

The gallery features items from nearly 40 artists from eight different states, and is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Jim Cechetti of Rock Falls is currently showing his weavings at the gallery. There is jewelry from Mary DeVault of Erie, glass work from JoAnn Frederick of Prophetstown, and woodworking from Jeremy Johnson of Erie also on display.
