EDITION Chicago Gives EXPO a Run for its Money

EDITIONChicagoLOGO.jpgWhenever a fair or festival becomes successful, satellite events are soon to follow. And now that the much-hyped EXPO Chicago has gotten a little steam, that's exactly what's happening. This weekend the Chicago Artist Coalition (CAC) and local gallerist Andrew Rafacz have teamed up to create EDITION Chicago with the aim of exhibiting high quality, cutting-edge work that presents new ideas, while remaining financially attainable. Because let's face it, EXPO is bound to have a lot of exciting work on exhibit, but most of us won't be able to buy any of it.

"We are pleased to present such a diverse and respected list of galleries in our first year that proves great contemporary art can be found in all price ranges," said Executive Director of CAC Carolina O. Jayaram. "Not only is the new EDITION Chicago an incredible opportunity to start building an art collection or add to your existing collection, but the satellite fair builds on the exciting momentum surrounding art in Chicago right now that CAC is proud to be an integral part of."

The list of 2013 exhibiting galleries includes:
Abryant Gallery (Chicago)
Andrew Rafacz Gallery (Chicago)
Carter + Citizen (Los Angeles)
Chicago Artists Coalition (Chicago)
CourtneyBlades (Chicago)
DOCUMENT (Chicago)
LaMontagne Gallery (Boston)
Manneken Press (Bloomington, IL)
MKG127 (Toronto)
Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago)
Public Works (Chicago)
threewalls (Chicago)
Walter Maciel Gallery (Los Angeles)

EDITION Chicago will take place at Chicago Artists Coalition's West Loop gallery located at 217 N. Carpenter Street, September 20-22 (Friday, 12pm - 7pm, Saturday, 10am - 7pm and Sunday, 11am - 6pm) Admission to the fair is free with a suggested $10 donation. More information at
