Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery is a modern art gallery located in the
Fulton Market Gallery District in Chicago's West Loop. It specializes in
handcrafted modern furniture, sculpture, and artwork designed and produced
by Robert Wayner as well as other notable Chicago designers and artists.
Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery is an "eco-friendly" gallery--virtually all
of the furniture and sculpture is constructed of wood that fell naturally ( ie:
wind erosion, water erosion, or lighting strikes).
Juried art exhibits, featuring the work of Midwestern artists, are held every
month on the walls of Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery. The gallery has
also displayed artwork from artists throughout the world. In November 2006,
Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery was the chosen venue for the first solo
exhibition of esteemed Russian surrealist artist Agatha Belaya. In July-August
of 2007, Robert Wayner curated the highly publicized Tolerance of Belief
exhibit, which showcased the artwork of 12 Muslim and Jewish artists from
around the world.
Robert Wayner/Black Walnut Gallery is located at 220 N. Aberdeen St., next
to Pivot, an eco-friendly clothing boutique.
