MONTICELLO, Ill. (WCIA) — An iconic local artist passed away Saturday. There will be a visitation for Larry Ziemer Thursday night at Mackey Wright Funeral Home.

Ziemer and his wife ran Ziemer Gallery. The shop was open about 30-years, but Ziemer had been painting since 1970. His wife says he painted almost every day and also did some pottery.

People say he will be missed. An exhibit, showcasing his work through the years, will be set up at a later date.
