Creek Gallery is an event hosted by Willow Creek Crystal Lake to celebrate our creative community.  The show features local artists of different faiths and backgrounds from McHenry County and the Chicagoland area as well as a few international guests. 

Opening night is a secular, celebratory event open to the public. Admission is free.

For three weeks, the church turns its sizable atrium into an exhibition gallery as a way to welcome the creative community into our space. This is a volunteer-run show operating as part of Willow Crystal Lake's visual arts team, which is a ministry focused on creating artistic experiences designed to lead people toward a greater understanding of God and themselves. 

The 6th Annual Creek Gallery exhibition includes the work of 60+ artists and nearly 100 pieces of fine art from the local emerging, mid-career and museum exhibited artists.

Join our mailing list for updates or to be notified for future calls for artists.

The Willow Visual Arts team is also a community ("artists" and "non-artists" alike) of people who share more then their talents with each other as they use their gifts and reach out into the community. 

For more information on Willow Crystal Lake, please visit the church's website at .
