Chicago’s source for art gallery news, events, and listings


Happy New Year!

We are excited about our new issue, the openings taking place this Friday evening, and so many new artists and creatives at work in Chicago and beyond. Read the latest news and features here. We cover two Richard Hunt exhibitions, collector Carlos Martinez's eclectic setting for art, youth art programs, the 75th anniversary of the South Side Community Art Center, FLATS Studios, and more. 

Be on the lookout for the latest issue of CGN featuring Rangefinder Gallery and its plans for First Fridays. We want you to make a resolution to include art as a part of your life in 2015, and let CGN be your go-to guide!
