The Fall Gallery Season is Here!

September = art. That sums up this month in Chicago's creative community. Beginning tonight things go full steam in galleries and art spaces around the city. Dozens of gallery receptions take place and you can plan whatever kind of arty evening strikes your fancy. Grab a copy of CGN to guide you on your artistic search, or just go where the crowds take you. Many galleries save their strongest shows of the year for this big opening season, while others take advantage of the chance to introduce their new stars to an engaged audience. Check out our list of who's opening where tonight - you'll be able to visit dozens of spaces in River North, West Loop, the suburbs and on the North Side.  

Join our Flickr group to post your opening night photos, or be sure to Tweet us @ChiGalleryNews and keep up with the crowds.

If you can't make it out tonight, then go on a free Saturday tour of the galleries tomorrow - details here.

- Happy gallery hopping!
