WINNETKA, IL – It's finally spring, and time for homeowners across the North Shore to welcome the change of seasons in their homes!

"Many beautiful North Shore homes have empty walls just begging for a beautiful piece of art," says Cynthia Burr, the owner of the gallery. Vivid features a diverse group of artists whose work is on display at all times, so there is always a large choice of art available to shoppers.
