The Art Fair Company, based in Chicago, recently presented two art fairs under one roof at Chicago’s historic Navy Pier and the Short North's own Lindsay Gallery and Sherrie Gallerie were there to participate in this great event.

For the second straight year, SOFA Chicago 2011, the critically acclaimed International Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fair, shared the Pier’s Festival Hall with The Intuit Show of Folk & Outsider Art. SOFA Chicago, now in its 18th year, enjoys the prestigious position of being the largest and longest continually running art fair in Chicago, a mainstay of the city’s cultural and social calendar.

Duff Lindsay of Lindsay Gallery joined in this annual event by exhibiting new works at The Intuit Show of Folk & Outsider Art. “SOFA Chicago’s addition of The Intuit Show last year widened the horizon of art offered and expanded the audience of collectors,” says Mark Lyman, SOFA Founder/Director and President of The Art Fair Company. “We’re pleased to partner again with The Intuit Center and are delighted The Intuit Show again shared center stage with this year’s SOFA Chicago.”

Sherrie Hawk has exhibited in the SOFA Chicago Fair since it's inception. Collectors and Museum directors come from all over to see some of the best work being created in these new mediums.

Artist showcase new work and directions at the show. Sherrie Gallerie introduced new work by two artists who collaborated to make large vessel forms with expressive drawings.

"Exhibiting at the SOFA Chicago show allows me to represent the leading artists in their fields, then I can bring the work back to Ohio for our customers," says Hawk.
