West Chicago, Illinois: September 28, 2015 – Fall in love with Gallery 200, located at 200 Main Street, during its annual Artoberfest, this year themed Art for All Seasons. The month-long event, which coincides with the 10th Anniversary of the Gallery in downtown West Chicago and Illinois Arts & Humanities Month, kicks off with an Artist Reception on Friday, October 2, 2015 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Eleven featured artists include Rita Heim, Heide Morris, Brittta Renwick, Dayna Shaffer, Marge Hall, First Star Art duo Jrr & Jammer, Kathy Steere, Judi Horsley, Andy! Kozlowski, and Sandy McLain; and the work of dozens of other artists will be available for enjoyment and sale. A division of the not-for-profit People Made Visible (PMV) since 2014, Gallery 200 began as a public/private partnership between the creative community and the City of West Chicago to offer a venue for the talents of its residents and to build a downtown niche for the arts. The City-owned building has served as an incubator for emerging artists, as well as an outlet for professional artists wishing to display and sell their work. It continues to draw energy into the heart of the community through a full schedule of monthly exhibits, art classes, demonstrations and more.
