About Water Street Studios
Water Street Studios is a nonprofit art center located in Batavia, IL. The gallery at Water Street Studios is curated by Steve Sherrell and a committee of volunteers. Awarded “Best Gallery” in 2019 by West Suburban Living Magazine and Kane County Chronicle. The gallery features over 100 artists every year by offering monthly exhibitions in award-winning galleries. It welcomes over 10,000 people every year through art programming opportunities including monthly gallery exhibition (24 per year), art classes and workshops, subsidized artist studios, and public and private events in our historic venue.
The current site of Water Street Studios was built in 1886 as a midwest expansion of the US Wind Engine and Pump Company. The factory manufactured the famous first Self-Governing Windmill invented by Daniel Halladay. Renovations of this historic building began in 2007 and opened as Water Street Studios in 2009.
Water Street Studios invites you to get closer to your own humanity each time you walk through the doors. The gallery manufactures art experiences for you to connect to something bigger than yourself. The organization makes it possible for artists to continue to create; students to embrace new ways of learning; visitors to be transported; instructors to make a living; and the community to thrive. Every dollar invested in Water Street Studios is a dollar invested in building a more diverse, vibrant, and connected community.
