I had known of Matt Lamb's art for years in the Chicago art scene. I remember meeting him at an event in the mid-2000s. We started talking and I asked him what he was up to and he said, "I am opening an Art Museum. What are you up to?" I said, "I have been working on my art museum as well, the Howar...

Yesterday was an art tastic day as well! I got a call from an old friend who wanted a Dolly Parton and this man came in at the end of the night looking for the Kramer painting he had seen before. I didn't have the big one but after some searching we found the little one and he was ecstatic. That's what I do I make people happy with art. I take it very seriously and I'm very happy to get to do it! Donald Topp and Maximilian crush it. #544

The DLG where all the art looks better in your house!

At the height of the Recession in 1990 David Leonardis started collecting art. When he realized he wanted to collect more art than he could afford he got a job working at a gallery. Eight months later, allied with Howard Finster, Chris Peldo, Glenn Wexler, and Andy Kane, he turned a few profitable art sales into a commitment to own and operate the David Leonardis Gallery.

Twenty-eight years later the Wicker Park gallery has not only survived another ignoble recession, but we are at the forefront of 21st century American Art. DLG also carries 19th-century French lithographs and 20th century Contemporary, Pop, Folk Art, and Photography. David’s focus is simple: “I enjoy making people and corporations happy by selling them art.”

The DLG features a yearly “Instant art collection” group show. We suggest that you buy one of each of the artists we’ve chosen to exhibit. This way, individuals and corporations find it easy to acquire a well-rounded collection.

The David Leonardis Gallery here in Chicago also works with the artists and the clients to produce commissions and encourages people to take advantage of its Mastercard/VISA acceptance options or the DLG payment plan. Cash discounts are always available as well, but you still have to pay the tax. It’s our duty as citizen folks.
