Chamber Excited to Celebrate Grand Opening of Randimonium Art Studio

New Lenox, IL (May 16, 2017) — The New Lenox Chamber of Commerce was honored to help celebrate the grand opening of Randimonium Art Studio with a ribbon cutting on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Randimonium is located at 14423 Edison Dr, Unit B, New Lenox, IL 60451.

Randimonium is owned by Kate Ahrens, a local artist who is excited to share her passion for art. Kate lives in New Lenox with her fiancé and their children. “Between us we have five children, ages 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18. Having my business in the community where we live is important to our family. I want to have our children to be involved and participate in the business,” shared Kate.

Kate was surrounded by family and friends as she cut the blue ribbon to mark the grand opening of her art studio. Representatives from the Chamber’s Board of Directors, Ambassador Team and Membership were at the event to offer support and congratulations. Gary Fouts, Chamber President, presented Kate with a certificate commemorating the ribbon cutting and Nancy Dye, Economic Development Coordinator for the Village of New Lenox, welcomed Randimonium to the New Lenox community

Randimonium offers kids painting classes, wine and paint nights, private parties, and more. Kate hopes that she will be able to expand from acrylic and canvas painting and introduce new art mediums overtime.

“Painting is fun! It's therapeutic. It's relaxing.  It gets deep into your spirit and changes you. Most of all we want people to understand that just because imagination doesn't make it to canvas without effort - doesn't mean you can't do it.  You can. Everyone has an artist hidden inside,” shared Kate.

“I’m always pleased when businesses choose New Lenox but Randimonium is really exciting. It’s unique and really something that will attract people to our community,” stated Emily Johnson, CEO of the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce.
