Artropolis at Merchandise Mart this weekend



Among the many delights cued up at this year's Artropolis, there are some signature returns and new offerings. It is the thirty first year of Art Chicago, which will partner with the Next Fair on the twelfth floor. On the eighth floor, the spring International Antiques Fair will be presented for the fourteenth year.

Speakers, panels of experts, sculpture displays on Orleans Street, and an abundance of present artists, artworks, galleries and dealers make this show a must see Chicago destination this weekend, April 29th through May 1st, 2011. Hawk Gallery & Fair Guests, photo: J. Kronika


A few offerings at Art Chicago include the stable artists of Carrie Secrist Gallery, new print works from resident artists and publishing projects with Anchor Graphics, sculpture and photography at Ken Saunders Gallery. Inside the booths of Next, emerging artists will present work at such gallery displays as Dunham Place Salon and Ada Gallery of New York, Mixed Greens, and Chicago's own Kavi Gupta. At the Antiques Fair, stunning jewelry will be featured at M. S. Rau, textural antiquities for home decor will be offered at The Golden Triangle, and a relic from the time of Abraham Lincoln will be on display.

I will be attending the show and will share some of the details of my visit with you here.
