Art Dealers Association of Chicago


Many gallery openings take place every month

What are openings all about?

Approximately every six to eight weeks, many galleries in the River North and West loop gallery districts, and beyond, open their doors on the same night and invite the public to explore the art scene in these popular gallery districts, meet artists and mingle with other art collectors and enthusiasts. Everyone is welcome.

Galleries are open to the public and free. Please visit the Member Galleries for complete gallery information.

A full schedule of area openings may be found at Chicago Gallery News

Several River North galleries are now also open on the First Friday of the month, in addition to their regular openings schedule; openings for new shows typically happen on Friday evenings. To read about the return of First Fridays, please click here.
