River North Design District Participating in September 11 Gallery Walk

There are myriad overlaps between art and design, and this fall local ties will be on display when the River North Design District (RNDD) participates for the first time in the annual opening of the fall gallery season on Friday, September 11. Many area design showrooms, scattered throughout River North, will be open until 10pm. Participating showrooms will also each exhibit work by a contemporary artist, even after the walk is over, until November 11. 

“This is the inaugural year for RNDD Gallery Walk. River North has one of the densest visual art gallery populations in Chicago, and our participation in this gallery night exemplifies how the design showrooms are partners in promoting visual art,” says Lisa Bell, Marketing Manager from The Tile Gallery, who is chairing the event.

The exposition is comprised of both emerging and established artists, including Lynn Basa, Sheila Ganch, Eric Gushee, Brenda Dawn Jones, Sally Ko, Rim Lee, Candace McGarry, Keiko Nemeth, Rubem Robierb, Phillip Schalekamp, Pamela Staker, Linc Thelen, Adam Thomas and Jennifer Webster.
