Elgin Area AAUW Branch’s  49 years of Art Showcase (1960-2009) will be celebrated at Elgin ArtSpace Gallery with a two week exhibit March 6-18. Artwork purchases throughout those 49 years will be represented in this event.  The Arts Committee has gathered artwork from the Elgin Arts Commission, City Hall, Hemmens Auditorium Gallery and Elgin businesses, as well as from AAUW members for this exhibit.

Janet Heinicke will present the AAUW commissioned painting by George Stefely at this gala reception to kick off our two week Art Showcase exhibit.  Janet was a founder of Art Showcase in 1920 and will share some of that history.  The painting is a gift to Art Space to commemorate Art Showcase and Elgin Area Branch AAUW’s 10th Anniversary.
