Welcome to Vivid Art Gallery, a new destination on Chicago’s North Shore where art is presented with passion and energy. At Vivid we know that acquiring art should evolve from discovery, not shopping. That’s why we created this space, more like a living room than a traditional gallery. It’s a place where the works of many artists, not just a few, will be displayed at all times, so there is always something new to see.  A place where you can hear the stories of the artists and their work.


We provide an environment where art is a conversation—so whether you come in to find a painting for over your mantle, or just stop in to see what’s new, we want you to leave with a little more knowledge and a lot more excitement than you did when you came in.  We look forward to helping you find artwork you will be thrilled with for your living space.


Vivid Art Gallery opened its doors in October, 2016, with the idea that the North Shore would welcome a different kind of gallery.  Exhibiting work by more than 20 artists every day gives customers the ability to “gallery hop” in one location.  The gallery exhibits an expanded selection of works by a featured artist each month at its popular “First Friday” art openings.    A local artist is also featured each month, providing the many talented artists in the area gallery space to show their work. 


The gallery specializes in contemporary American painting, works on paper, and ceramics. Most of its artists, from emerging to mid-career, are located in the Midwest, which gives us the opportunity to visit them in their studios.  A broad range of styles is included, from representational to abstract.  Media include oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, ink, porcelain, clay, and mixed media.


Vivid Art Gallery is located in the Hubbard Woods neighborhood of Winnetka, located on the northeast corner of Tower and Green Bay Roads.  You can’t miss our ever-changing display windows!  We are open Tuesday through Saturday, 11-5, and by appointment.
