Thank you to everyone who came out to show his or her support to Union Street Gallery by attending the reception for Handmade Market on November 19th. It was amazing to see so many friendly faces as the calendar year comes to an end.
I was thrilled to spend my second Handmade Market reception with everyone. It has been an exciting year getting to know the Union Street Gallery community. I appreciate all the time and effort everyone has made to help me get acquainted with the gallery, associated artists, and local community in general. The warm reception to some of the changes I have implemented this past year has been very motivating.
This past year, the gallery has seen about 3,000 visitors during 13 exhibitions. We currently have 15 studio artists in the building and numerous other affiliated artists through the Guild, members, and friends of the gallery. Our admission has remained free along with free tours for school groups.
Union Street Gallery continues to provide high quality arts programming in the Chicago Southland. You support our mission in more ways than you know when speaking about the gallery or bringing someone here for the first time. Each time you like one of our posts on social media or forward an email to a friend, you are helping us succeed. The donated supplies, food at receptions, and suggest admission price all help.
Like all nonprofits, the gallery relies heavily on monetary donations that are tax deductible. Consider the following as ways to support Union Street Gallery:
- becoming a member
- sponsoring an exhibit, event, or the gallery in general
- making a donation
Again, thank you for your support during my first year as gallery director and your continued support of Union Street as a whole. I hope you will continue to be part of our community during the coming year.
