Art at 801


801 Lofts presents art openings three times a year. The three-story atrium and public space is a gallery, Art at 801, to local and national artists who display their work on an ongoing basis.

Art and artisans change every four months to display new talent and media. Gallery openings offer residents and the association a chance to open their doors to friends, family and others who want to support our local art community.

Michael Garr

The Flower Paintings. In the Dadaist pamphlet publication, “Poisson Taureau” (number 23,1921), Sylvia Rosen is quoted, “In the future, the work of art will become such a commercial endeavor that husbands will be able to purchase paintings of flowers from vendors on the street as token gifts for their wives when they return home from a day’s work.”  I remember when I was a child that flowers were commonly sold like this out of white five gallon buckets on the streets of New York.

It is Rosen’s whimsical spirit that inspired the central theme of this group of work. 


Polly Norman

I love to reflect, refract and shadow interesting objects. Photographing them through glass block using natural or studio lighting does all three. I shoot them in black and white and then color the resulting image. Through this process, I try to create a sense of mystery and motion in my works.


Adam Kirk

I make work from a romantic point of view, modeling myself on artists who are directly invested in their personal hopes, longings, and fears. I have my own relationship and understanding with each of my paintings, but I ask people to engage with the work on the basis of their particular relationship to it and not based on any context I might provide.


Art at 801 Gallery, in 801 Lofts, promotes art to neighborhood residents and art lovers through three openings a year. This is our 39th show in the North Loop Neighborhood!
