Garage Galleries is back – Forest Park Review

Art lovers, and those with an itch to visit with interesting people, have been happy to hear that Garage Galleries will be back in Forest Park on Saturday, Aug. 28 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

In 23 garages from the 300 block of Elgin to the 1300 block of Marengo, rain or shine, the work of 52 artist will be featured. Paintings in watercolor and oil, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, photography, functional art, and ceramics.

Lin Beribak, who coordinates all of the artists exhibiting and is herself a watercolorist, said prices of the art tend to range between $10 and $400 although one piece sold for five figures a few years ago.  She said that some of the artists are professionals — one of whom has work in the permanent collection of the Art Institute — while many others are hobbyists just getting started.
