Hello! My name is William.
I am a self-employed artist living & directing a gallery in Wicker Park. Last year I completed a Masters degree in Fine Arts at the School Of The Art Institute of Chicago where I studied Video, Performance, Photography and Film.
Important things to me are dream recording, writing, correspondence art, experimental film, movement practices, reading & traveling. I try to travel as often as possible, even if it's just a driving trip of two hours to camp somewhere for a night or two.
I want to provide an environment for artists & other creative, passionate individuals to have a voice & present their work. Sharing stories, ideas, experiences & realities are what we're in it for. We at the gallery are holding the torch in the neighborhood to provide a space for what might be unsayable elsewhere. We are daily developing our intentional space here to create an inspiring atmosphere for all who step foot inside, whether it's for a project proposal or a short visit. It's an older building, lovingly-worn, rooms with character surrounding an open gallery space.
As an airbnb guest, you can expect that we'll be curious about you. Our roommates & us all get along really well: It is an easy going dynamic here at the house. We are an eclectic variety!
Looking forward to meeting you)
