SPRINGFIELD - Painting, theater, music, and good food will all be elements of a Spring Evening with the Arts, to be held Saturday, April 17, on campus at the University of Illinois at Springfield.  Sponsored by the U of I Alumni Association at UIS, the evening will present opportunities for the community to enjoy a variety of arts-related activities.

Paintings by Vivian Eveloff, a nationally recognized artist and UIS alumna, will be on display in the Visual Arts Gallery, located on the ground floor of the Health and Sciences Building.  A complimentary wine and cheese reception with Eveloff will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the gallery.
