Springfield Artworks and Margie Trembley Chapeaux are both located in a historic building built by the late Peter Kiewit, a bricklayer at the time. Both an art gallery/studio as well as a millinery shop, this delightful small gallery is at 183 Main Street in Springfield, just 6 miles South of Omaha exiting at 440 off of I-80 and going 6 miles south. The owners, Glenn and Margie Trembley are both accomplished artists and designers, having studied with some of the top instructors both domestically and internationally. Glenn's expertise is in the field of fused glass art. He creates commission work for your home as well as gifts, functional glass pieces and whimsies to enhance your garden. Classes for both beginners and advanced students are also held by appointment. His glass Christmas ornaments are a popular item that delight the recipient each holiday season.
