Collaborative Arts Guild - Union Street Gallery

Governors State University (GSU) connects with Collaborative Arts Guild (CAG)

University Park, IL—Governors State University connects with the south suburban Collaborative Arts Guild through its Art on Campus program.

From January 25, 2010 through March 31, 2010 the campus’ main entrance Atrium Gallery and the Upstairs Gallery at the Center for the Performing Arts will feature the paintings, photography, and poetry of seven members of the CAG.

The Collaborative Arts Guild is part of Union Street Gallery, Chicago Heights, IL and provides area artists a platform to develop their creativity, exhibit their art, and conduct business as professional artists.

The Art on Campus program was initiated to celebrate the installation of GSU’s president Dr. Elaine Maimon, and to enhance campus life for students, staff and visitors. While featuring the artwork of GSU’s students and special art programs, such as ARTSfest, is the central focus of the program, this connection with the CAG and Union Street Gallery is in keeping with GSU’s commitment to reaching out to the surrounding community.

The exhibit represents diverse artistic styles of the participating artists: abstract, representational nature and landscape paintings, digital photography, and mixed media collage. The colorful range of work was organized by Michéle P. Owens and curated by Jeff Stevenson. A number of CAG members have been students in GSU’s art program.
