The COVID-19 Pandemic has certainly created challenges for local art galleries and studios.

Thankfully, due to phase 3 of Illinois reopening, some places are finally beginning to open their doors to the public again!

Yellow Elephant Gallery is one of the businesses that has finally reopened after months of closed doors. They can be found at 150 N. Schuyler Ave. Suite 100 Kankakee, Illinois inside the Burfield Remington.

The owner, Elisabeth Dunbar, said on the gallery’s Facebook page “I can’t pretend being closed for three months hasn’t been hard. So I’m incredibly excited to announce our reopening! June 3 we will begin summer post-quarantine hours. Wednesday-Friday 11-4, Saturday 10-3. Look for @elisabethdunbar, @kylee.boudreau and @silverliningsartinc at the gallery and lots of new merchandise and pop up exhibits to reinvigorate everyone’s creativity. We’ve missed you!! 💛🐘”

When you visit the gallery, you will find tons of locally sourced goods. From paintings and photography, pottery and plants, to jewelry and even coffee, you will be sure to find something you love at this local gem!
