Established over 15 years ago, Madron’s ever changing collection includes paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, and sculptures from the late 19th through mid-20th centuries. A wide variety of styles are represented — from Impressionism to Surrealism — by artists like Theodore Butler, Reginald Marsh, John Henry Twachtman, and Ben Shahn, among others.
Madron collaborates with the greater Chicago community and the broader art community in order to increase awareness and appreciation of American art. Contemporary and thematic shows are hosted throughout the year, including exhibitions that highlight the work of individual artists. Past exhibitions have featured artists such as Chuck Walker, Marc Hauser, and Seymour Rosofsky.
Madron seeks to further scholarship around influential but perhaps less widely recognized American artists, especially Chicago artists. Please contact the gallery to learn more about upcoming events, publications, exhibitions, and new acquisitions.
A new publication examining the life and work of Chicago artist William S. Schwartz is coming in 2020!
