The River North Design District kicked off Chicago’s 2015 art season on Sept. 11 with its annual Fall Gallery Walk. Oscar Isberian Rugs is a proud sponsor of this event and our Kinzie location was one of 10 participating Chicago design showrooms.

Guests at the early autumn Gallery Walk ambled leisurely along the River North Design District showroom route, viewing the breathtaking works of talented artists: Lynn Basa, Sheila Ganch, Eric Gushee, Brenda Dawn Jones, Sally Ko, Rim Lee, Candace McGarry, Keiko Nemeth, Rubem Robierb, Phillip Schalekamp, Pamela Staker, Linc Thelen, Adam Thomas and Jennifer Webster. The event was curated by Daniel Kinkade of of Daniel Kinkade Fine Art.

As the late writer and mystic Thomas Merton once said, “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” We thank all of the participating artists for pointing the way.
