USG Studio Artists Collaborative
Union Street Gallery Studio Artist organization is a collaborative. They meet on a monthly basis to develop programming, planning and execution of all Gallery activities. Studio Artists set the annual calendar of events and thematic development of exhibits and oversee development of each show and prospectus. As a collaborative, they review prospective Studio Artist applications, act as spokespersons for Gallery and Studios as needed and are involved in community relations' development through off-site events, including academia lectures, exhibits, workshops and a variety of outreach activities.

Union Street Gallery's mission is to encourage and nurture emerging and established artists and be a resource for art appreciation and education to the communities that make up the Chicago Southland. Studio Artists represent the artists spectrum from autodidactic (mostly self taught) through MFA's.
