A personal note: I’ve been to Union Street Gallery multiple times for gallery receptions, events, and open mic nights, and I can’t stress enough how nice this space is and how wonderful and helpful the staff is. USG is great gallery in a small suburb that puts on a lot of good shows and has a great eye for talent. I highly recommend!
