past Creek Gallery shows...
For 6 years, Creek Gallery was a fine art exhibition curated & produced by J + K Isacson and hosted by Willow Creek Crystal Lake to celebrate our creative community.  The show featured local artists of different faiths and backgrounds from McHenry County and the Chicagoland area as well as a few international guests. 

This was a great event offering free exhibition opportunities to artists in an unorthodox setting, with an audience of about 5,000 each week. Artists handled their own sales and kept 100%

Each Creek Gallery exhibition included the work of 60+ artists and nearly 100 pieces of fine art from the local emerging, mid-career and museum exhibited artists.

For three weeks, the church turned its sizable atrium into an exhibition gallery as a way to welcome the creative community into our space. This was a volunteer-run show operating as part of Willow Crystal Lake's visual arts team.
