Art and creativity play an important part in historic downtown Vermilion.

The Main Street Vermilion Arts Guild inspires and encourages artistic expression through their members—all local artists and craftsmen who display their work at the gallery inside the Main Street Vermilion Building at 685 Main Street. The gallery features watercolors and acrylics, photography, original jewelry, woodworking, ceramics and pottery and more and changes with each approaching season.
