DeKalb Gallery, a fine art gallery created by Daniel Grych in July 2000 to promote artists, to sell original fine art, and to provide a fine art venue for the community. Since its inception the gallery showcased work by local artists on a consignment basis, featured group and solo exhibitions, provided hand crafted archival picture framing, photographic documentation of fine art in 35mm transparency and digital formats, and individual internet galleries for artists.
The climate of an art venue in downtown DeKalb changed as the country experienced massive recessions, and the gallery closed its doors on September 6, 2008. The internet fine art gallery, dekalbgallery.com, continued as a resource for DeKalb area artists.
THE ART BOX opened in June 2011 to provide hand crafted archival picture framing, and showroom space for DeKalb Gallery and other local artists.
THE ART BOX, 308 East Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, Illinois, 60115. Hours: 11 am to 6 pm daily, closed Sundays and Wednesdays. Contacts: phone no. 815-758-0313, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
