Join me this Friday, October 19th, as the Greenleaf Art Center and I host a “Follow Me on Friday“ to celebrate “Block by Block,” a one-night-only Artist Reception and Open House featuring 70 local artists. The reception and open house begins at 6 p.m. (an hour later than the usual Follow Me on Friday start time) and lasts until 10 p.m.
Located at 1806 W. Greenleaf (just east of the Metra tracks), the Greenleaf Art Center provides studio and exhibition space for area artists and is home to five business enterprises. Since its inception in 1990 by Kathie and Denis Paluch, the Center has grown to become a vibrant part of the Rogers Park arts community.
Block by Block offers you a chance to peek into the work space of your favorite artists and witness their creative processes. Start your holiday shopping early with some of the most reasonably priced original art you will find.
As you peruse the galleries, sip a glass of wine, beer or soda and sample Kathie and Denis’ delicious appetizers. End your evening with a cup of coffee and a treat from their irresistible sweet table.
Join me this Friday as we celebrate the arts in Rogers Park at this unique artist gallery and workspace!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
