Date: March 16, 2018 - March 18, 2018

The second installment of our new weekly Wicker Park Bucktown Weekend Arts Guide is here! Friday is a particularly busy day for artists in the neighborhood this week as we ramp up to Chicago’s grand celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day on Saturday and collectively wind down on Sunday.

Friday is full of exhibition openings and events. Start out at Corbett vs. Dempsey with an opening reception from 6:00pm to 8:00pm for Margot Bergman: Thank you for having me and Christina Forrer. Swing by Quimby’s Bookstore for John Porcellino: From Lone Mountain at 7:00pm. Round out the evening with a triple opening at Heaven Gallery hosting receptions for their shows Fission Fusion, Night Brings Day/Day Brings Night, and Cornered from 7:00pm to 11:00pm.

During your Saturday Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations you can also celebrate Women’s History Month at Bite Café with their Women’s History Month Artist Reception from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

On Sunday, stop by LVL3 during their open hours to wrap up your weekend with their ongoing exhibition, 8.

Other ongoing exhibitions and shows around the neighborhood include RED at Jackson Junge Gallery, Not Just Drawing-A Line With Intent at ARC Gallery, Veiled Landscapes at AdventureLand Gallery, Maximilian & Friends: Homage to Women at David Leonardis Galleries, and Cathy Hsiao & Kaveri Raina: To Hover at Roots & Culture.

Be sure to support your local artists, galleries, and arts organizations by hitting up these openings and events and spreading the word about the arts in Wicker Park and Bucktown!
