August 10, 2007

Acme Art Works

Since 2000 this two-story yellow-brick warehouse has been a working studio for more than 38 artists, with a designated gallery space presenting eight shows a year featuring local and international artists. | 1741 N. Western | Thu-Sat noon-5 PM | 773-278-7677

BlueLine Studio

Poet David Hernandez and “visual poet” Batya Hernandez show paintings, prints, and sculpture and host dance and music performances, poetry readings, and screenings. Studio visits by appointment; public shows run during Chicago Artists’ Month in October and ChicArt Chicago in March. | Bloomingdale Arts Building | 2418 W. Bloomingdale, #104 | 773-486-0485


Founder Rob Ray and local artists Alexander Stewart and Taylor Hokanson show predominantly tech-inspired work at this second-story “art and technology center.” Recent shows included a stop-motion video installation by Matt Steinke with animatronics, intermittent performances, and paintings. | 3321 W. Fullerton | 773-426-2828 |

People Projects

A not-for-profit collective exhibiting the work of mostly local artists, this is one of the few neighborhood spaces that actually reads as a gallery from street level—it’s got white walls and a clearly visible sign and everything. It hosts small events as well as several live music shows a month. | Sat-Sun noon-5 PM | 2129 N. Milwaukee | 773-474-0979 |

Revolution Tattoo

Cheri Basak and Omar Gutierrez’s successful tattoo shop has been doing double duty as a gallery space since 2002, rotating exhibits of “low-brow, religious, sexual, sometimes controversial, and for obvious reasons, tattoo-related” art every six to eight weeks. | Mon-Sat noon-9 PM | 2221 N. Western | 773-486-8888 |

Studio 207

Mark Siska shows work by “international artists with local ties” in his own living quarters; the art’s installed as you might expect it to be in someone’s home, though it’s probably better lit. Siska makes each of his six or so shows per year a low-pressure, casual yet informative experience. During Chicago Artists’ Month his and many other spaces in the Bloomingdale Arts Building—including the charming courtyard—host short-term exhibits and performances. | Sat noon-5 | 2418 W. Bloomingdale | 773-292-9261

Sulzen Fine Art Studio

For the past five years Julie Sulzen and Dan Zamudio have hosted exhibitions of their paintings and photos in their gallery/studio during April and October, along with a holiday show in December. Studio visits between shows are by appointment. | 2720 W. Saint Georges Ct. | 312-409-4618 |
