GALLERY ::: Gallery Guichard Chicago

Chicago south side Gallery Guichard has everything that an art lover or collector could want. Housed in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood is this building that illuminates the block of 35th and Martin Luther King Dr. Artist and founder, Andre Guichard helps to fuel this structure’s aura and has been running the gallery along with his wife since it started in 2005. Guichard features his work as well as 35 other artists of the African Diaspora.

I visited the gallery in March 2010 and was drawn to this particular acrylic on canvas painting Ancient Nature by artist Nathan Jalani Taylor.

Artwork includes sculpture and paintings that range from $200 to $20,000 dollars, so there is something creative for everyone. Gallery Guichard has many events, special offers, and hundreds of featured works of art at various times in the gallery and on the gallery website.

I was recently honored to have my work featured at Gallery Guichard as part of the Bombay Saphire Artisan Series.
