Gallery200

I wish Warrenville had a gallery or an art store. As far as I know, it does not. One of the closest is Gallery 200 in West Chicago, just 10 minutes away.  If you are an artist looking for a place to display and possibly sell you work, consider Gallery 200. Gallery 200 is moving on Sept 1 to a new location that is bigger. That means there is room for more artists.

What is Gallery 200?

Gallery 200 is a gallery of over 20 artists in many types of media. It runs as a co-op under the umbrella of a non-profit called People Made Visible. People Made Visible coordinates projects in West Chicago, including music nights, Healthy West Chicago, a community garden project, and various cultural events. Gallery 200 is moving because the building where it is currently located is scheduled for major renovations. It is moving just a couple of blocks from 200 Main Street to 103 W. Washington in downtown West Chicago. The new location has much more space, that will be used for many of the People Made Visible projects.

How does the Gallery 200 Co-op Work?

  • Artists are juried in. They bring samples of your work & fill out an application.
  • Once accepted, each artist pays a nominal membership fee (annually in January, and prorated thru the year). If you join in September, the fee would be almost nothing.
  • Artists price and display their work at the gallery. 
  • Each artist is expected to staff the gallery 4 hours / month, and chooses the times they wish.
  • The gallery does not take a commission on sales, so the artist gets 100% of money collected.
  • Each month one of the artists is "featured". They hosts a bigger exhibit of their work, and kick it off with an opening reception. In October and December, there are group shows, where any of the Gallery 200 artists can join the show.

Stop By and Visit Gallery 200

Whether you want to join as an artist, or just check out the art, stop by Gallery 200 for a visit.
