Lloyd Shin Gallery has opened at 1141 Church St. on Cherry St. ( next to Sunset Foods) in Northbrook. The gallery is currently showing works from its collection. This is an eclectic mix, with an emphasis on early to mid- 20th century European and American art. You will find works by Braque, Matisse, Paul Klee, Pollock, as well as a couple of Fantin-Latours. The Zhou brothers, well-known in Chicago, are represented here.
Mr. Shin is friendly and knowledgeable and very interesting to talk to. Ask him abou the time he worked with Christo to wrap classical Greek statuary at the museum at Olympia, Greece. He moved his gallery from its original location on Superior St. in River North. It is well worth a visit to an unlikely location in a strip mall. I hope the community will support the presence of blue-chip art in our midst. Best wishes to Mr. Shin in his enterprise.
