Daily Herald report

The Trickster Art Gallery in Schaumburg was presented with the Illinois Veterans' Business Appreciation Award from the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs on Wednesday and received a proclamation from Gov. Bruce Rauner.

The Native art gallery was selected by the state after being nominated by a Schaumburg resident Carol Johnson for the work it has done with Native veterans to bring their stories to life.

There was an award presentation and a viewing of a documentary from the National Gathering 2016. A buffet style lunch was served, thanks to local food stores and restaurants that donated items.

Johnson said winning the quarterly award puts the gallery in the running for the annual award. The gallery is at 190 S. Roselle Road. For more information, go to trickstergallery.com or call (847) 301-2090.
