Description

Calmer House Gallery is established within Joliet's East Side National Register Historic District in a late 19th century structure where contemporary artistic visions can be seen in a traditional aesthetic setting. Our goal is to provide a venue for both established and emerging members of the photographic arts community. Four directors of the artist-run cooperative each present one show a year; visiting fine art photographers are selected by the board from recommendations by the gallery director.

History

The Calmer House Gallery is housed in Calmer House at 352 Union Street in Joliet, Illinois, on the main floor off of Grant Street. Calmer House was built in 1880. The house is Italianate, pressed red brick with over 20 rooms. Calmer House is listed on the National Register of historic homes and has been featured in the Herald News and the Chicago Tribune.
