The Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center's Nokomis Gallery is housed in the former Nokomis Theater lobby. With its original floor-to-ceiling subway-tiled walls and decorative hexagon tile flooring, the space provides a stunning backdrop for an array of artists to exhibit and sell their work year round—from emerging and student artists to visiting arts instructors and renowned master-level artisans.

Current Exhibition and Sale
We are currently exhibiting and selling an array of beautiful glass and metal works by local artists Brittany Foster, Lonny McLaughlin, Jacob Honer, Emily Johnson, Brad Buxton, Emily Organ, Mary Ila Duntemann, Jess Bergman Tank, Liz Parent, Heather Doyle, Roger Karlson, and others. The sale offers everything from hundreds of truly unique jewelry pieces and other smaller decorative and giftable items, to larger works of art and sculpture, so there is something for everyone, every space, and at every price range!
