On the first floor of the Bronzeville Artist Lofts, it pursues the original mission (2005) of the owners and founders Andre Guichard, Frances Guichard and Stephen Mitchell: to connect patrons (often corporate) and multicultural artists specialized in African Diaspora. Through exhibitions, experiential events and artistic tours, the gallery offers talents who do not yet enjoy visibility the opportunity to show their work and find funding. In 2020, the gallery supported the creation of ComEd's Bronzeville Renaissance Mural, a project that came to life at 38th and S. Michigan Ave, tracing the history of the Bronzeville community between past, present, and future.

Specialized in the study, dissemination, and education of the art of glass, it is a benchmark for artists who use this extraordinary material. Vases, ornaments, but above all sculptures of all sizes, some so worked that they seem to be of a completely different material, such as those of the emerging Daniel Jacob (born 1992), who makes precious objects from glass with natural gems and rocks. His Gold Air Jordans made with more than 140,000 Swarovski crystals demonstrate the adaptability of glass and the ultra-contemporary inspiration of the artist and the gallery that launched him. Tuesday-Saturday 11 am -5 pm.
