A Painterly Gifting: days of distribution (CLOSED)


About the Program

Public Program: Visual Art

Gallery Hours 11am – 6pm

Due to the overwhelming response to A Painterly Gifting: days of distribution, paintings are now in limited supply. Distribution will conclude after Thursday, February 29. Come while supplies last!

Having painted for decades, artist Patrick Chamberlain now presents A Painterly Gifting: days of distribution, wherein he joyfully gives away 100 paintings from his Chicago studio made between 2011 and 2023. Over the course of four days, The Arts Club of Chicago hosts the paintings, inviting interested parties to visit during gallery hours and claim one for their own (one painting per person, please). According to Mr. Chamberlain, “There is something about the architecture of The [Arts] Club that prompts reasoned generosity and I am honored. I believe that you will be pleased to be associated with these paintings. Or if not pleased, at least amused.”
