GAC, a vast, sky-lit warren of artists’ studios, also offers programs, exhibits, and classes for the public. Its main gallery is its concourse, a 170-foot-long hallway flanked by 40 private studios. It also contains a communal studio, classrooms, and a small commercial print shop. Denis and Kathleen Paluch started the center in 1990 in a building across the street. They bought and gutted its current home, believed to be a former Marshall Field’s warehouse, a little over a decade ago. Denis is a third-generation printer and a real estate broker; Kathleen is an artist and teacher. They run GAC as a business, renting 200-500-square-foot spaces for $300-$500 per month. They also offer several membership options, including one with 24-hour access to the open studio for $75 per month. There are about a dozen classes on offer, ranging from four to ten weeks, in everything from knitting to yoga to portraiture, some taught by resident artists. GAC mounts two annual art shows; its monthly salons and critiques are open to the public. A new event, an exhibit and sale of work donated by GAC artists with everything priced under $200 and all proceeds going toward scholarships for local kids, opens 2/6, with a reception from 6 to 9 PM, and runs through 3/7.
Jewelry maker Omar Farah and SAIC student Nikos Karabetsos opened this gallery and art center in late 2008. They carry work by about 20 local, mostly emerging artists and offer classes in yoga, drawing and painting, and parent-and-child crafts, and plan to add additional subjects, including tai chi and meditation, soon.
