Art Show 1 of 2

Northside Independent Artists

NIA Gallery Party
Saturday, September 6, 8pm – 11pm

I have alluded in recent weeks to two art shows.  The first is a private party in a private residence here in Chicago.  If you would like to be added to the invite list, please e-mail me at  The second will take place on December 21st at ChiPRC and will be open to the public.

It will be the same group for both shows, although we’ll be showing different work each time.  We decided to inaugurate ourselves as an official group: Northside Independent Artists, or NIA.  Our members work in a variety of mediums, from pen & ink to oil paint.  We are: Dean Johnson, Natalie Walser, Terrie Byrne and Rachal Duggan.

Our guests will be able to meet us, view our works up close, and talk shop if they wish.  We will have wine, light appetizers, and, of course, art for sale!  Guests may feel free just to stop by and peruse, or they can hang out with us all evening!

Again, please e-mail me if you are interested in the details….

  1. Hi Dean, hope the party went well and you all had a good evening. I’ve been enjoying browsing all your work, you’re a talented bunch! I like the NIA logo too, wish I could have been there to see your work and chat to you all!

    • It would have been great to meet you in the flesh, Phil!

      The party was fun, despite the fact that I was very sick and didn’t make it to the end! Our guests were sincerely interested in our artwork. I felt very appreciated and understood, and the guests gave me lots of new insights to think about. This is all grist for the mill with the Dec 21 NIA show coming up….
