Summer Gallery Openings Friday, June 4

The start to summer for most people kicked off with Memorial Day weekend, but in the art world, our summer starts this Friday, June 4.  Dozens of galleries around the city open their doors to welcome gallery-goers and host new exhibitions during the nice weather. And as we all know, everything is more fun when it's warm outside in Chicago! 

A lot of openings take place in River North, and there is also a big event taking place at the Flat Iron Arts Building, and a few openings take place elsewhere in the city.  Start on the early side Friday evening (come on, it's a short week - make the most of it!) and then take advantage of al fresco dining in the neighborhoods while you can!
Don't miss Jim Waid's solo show at Jean Albano Gallery in River North, go see Tom Parish's paintings of Venice at Gruen Galleries, two artists at work at Roy Boyd Gallery, and stop in to see works by Toots Zynsky at Habatat Galleries.  Running a little later into the evening is the June smARTshow at the Flat Iron Building in Bucktown/Wicker Park. 

And also remember that Saturday is a big art tour day in the galleries. You can start out in River North in the morning, and then head to the West Loop for a tour led by McCormick Gallery in the afternoon! Tours are free and open to the public!
