Upcoming Exhibit: Laura Berger

We're pretty much in love with Laura Berger. There, we said it. We sell her prints and greeting cards in the store all the time, but this will be her first exhibit with us in the gallery and we could not be happier. The Chicago artist's paintings are often serene and meditative but almost always have a deep feeling of real emotion that we always find moving. That, combined with a wonderful subdued color palette, makes her one of our favorites!
