Fine Line Kavanagh Gallery 37W570 Bolcum Road St. Charles, IL 60175

October 20 – November 18. Opening Reception October 20, 6 pm – 8 pm

As you all know we are having a show at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles. This is an opportunity to show work to a new audience. It could be work you have shown before as long as it is new to the Fine Line. I know for many of you it might be too far to drop off work, come to the opening, and pick it up also. I am offering to take you work there on the drop off date. All I need you to do is bring your work to our September 10th meeting (please wrap it carefully). The gallery at the Fine Line is a nice space with lots of traffic. Their commission is 30%.

This is the information they need:

  • ARTIST - Name, address, phone and email

  • ARTWORK - Title, media (if it has other mediums beside color pencil), size, price, if NFS give value - attach this information to the back of the piece securely

  • 3-5 pieces per artist

  • CV for artists' book. Please print out on an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.

  • DROP OFF DATE: October 17th 10am - 8pm. Leave in Kavanagh Gallery.

  • SHOW HUNG: October 18th (we do not have to do anything on this date)

  • RECEPTION October 20 6-8pm

Exhibiting artists are asked to bring a plate of cookies or finger food. They will supply the wine and other beverages. If you can not make the opening I will take food for you, please do not let that stop you from entering. I really want to let everyone see what outstanding work comes from our chapter.

If you have any questions please email me at
