We missed this one on yesterday's Events Calendar, so now the Wicker Park Bucktown Gallery Association gets special mention for their Inaugural Second Saturday Event, this Saturday, Dec. 9, from 6-10 pm.
The WBGA is an organization of galleries in the Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhood (roughly defined with the southern border at Division, the northern border at Fullerton, the western border at Western, and the eastern border at the Chicago River). Membership is by invitation, and is limited to: curated spaces that exhibit multiple artists throughout the year; galleries that do not charge their artists a fee to exhibit; galleries that operate within the contemporary art dialogue; galleries that operate within the ethical and professional practice guidelines developed by the Wicker Park Bucktown Gallery Association.
Participating galleries include: Around the Coyote Gallery, Blake Palmer Gallery, David Leonardis Gallery, Gosia Koscielak Studio & Gallery, Green Lantern, Johnsonese Gallery, Lloyd Dobler Gallery, The Society for the Arts, Teti Gallery. See the website for all gallery location and contact information.
