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

Feb26homepage-1

Will winter ever end? Snow, sun, snow, sun... The current issue of Chicago Gallery News does get us to spring, running through April, and it includes a full calendar of events taking place each week. 

Read the latest news and features here. We cover Doris Salcedo at the MCA, three gallery shows addressing violence, the Driehaus Museum's Maker and Muse, two Richard Hunt exhibitions, collector Carlos Martinez's eclectic setting for art, and more.

Our magazine cover feature this issue is Rangefinder Gallery and its plans for First Fridays. Each month on the first Friday you'll have a new chance to get out into the galleries in River North - and beyond - to see new work, meet artists, start a collection, who knows? 

Clockwise from top left: Doris Salcedo at the MCA; Lee Tracy at Josef Glimer Gallery for the Chicago Angels Project; Jewelry at the Driehaus Museum; Collector Carlos Martinez at home.
