The start of 2017 marks a new beginning for Armstrong Fine Art. After nearly 20 years in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood the gallery has moved to the South Side of the city. The art is now housed at the Bridgeport Art Center on West 35th Street. The disruption of a gut rehab of the lovely building on East Walton Place which the gallery called home for so long, prompted me to reevaluate the operations. After some careful consideration the decision was made to move. While Armstrong Fine Art operated as a gallery on Walton Place for quite a few years, our lovely space had become an office, with few visitors stopping by. Being an art dealer and working privately, the gallery space was clearly no longer needed. Moving on always reminds us of how things used to be, but also present us with a fresh look and new opportunities. I am decidedly turning to the latter aspect of this move!
In coming weeks you will receive a few emails announcing new acquisitions via email. A small paper catalogue is also planned for early March. In the meantime, the gallery will show in Portland (OR) and in San Antonio (TX). I look forward in seeing many friends of the gallery there, or to hear from you if you see anything of interest in our recent acquisitions. As a sing of gratitude to all of you who continue to support Armstrong Fine Art, all works of art can be sent to you “on approval” free of charge between now and the summer. Go ahead: let me know what I can send to you!
And a Happy New Year to you.
