I bought my first Gabe Lanza painting almost 3 years ago (I think that's how long it's been at least). I was hooked by his graphic style and amazing use of color then, and he's getting better all the time. Seriously. Gabe's one of the hardest working artists in Chicago and we're honored to be showing his new work!

Artist will be in attendance

Exhibit continues through February 23

To see more of Gabe's work please see his website at http://gabelanza.com


Get on the preview list by clicking this link and filling out the form. :)

In the past we did a new "preview list" for each exhibit, but we've had enough people express an interest in getting previews for all of our shows that we're switching to just one master preview list. You can get on or off the list at any time, but once you sign up you'll get preview notices for all of our upcoming exhibits. Thanks!

This looks like it's going to be a great show. I love Gabe's style, as it has a comic book style to it, and just looks awesome.

Great job, Gabe!

We pretty much finished hanging the show tonight, just a few loose ends to tie up but we'll definitely be ready for Friday night. This show is STUNNING...one of those that is really worth coming out and seeing in person, IMHO.

Also...if you're on the Gallery Preview List check your email! ;)

Hey Everyone!
I am really happy and excited about this show. I've been wanting to do an all robot show for quite some time. It was great to focus on nothing but my love of robots for the last couple of months.

Big thanks to Whitney and Kirby for having me.

Don't let the cold, snow, rain, winds...stop you from coming by. See ya Friday!

Great show, I'll get some pics up in the next day or two, I came home and hit the poker tables and tomorrow is dinner and a movie night, The pics I took may be F'd up cuz I knocked the setting off and didn't notice till I took a flash photo, so if they suck, I'm sorry if they turn out cool, I meant to do that.
