    This gallery has a longer history in Chicago than I knew about at first. They started out as Gwenda Jay, and the current owner, Addington, has been there for a long time. The name changed to Addington at least a year ago, and the shows have been so cool. The focus is mostly painting The painting styles are almost always unique...except for just onne or two realists, the majority of the painters here are doing beautiful work. There's a lot of texture and unusual materials in evidence. I've become more familiart with ENCAUSTIC painting from seeing shows here, and I love it. This means using beeswax in the work, and layering it so there's a real depth and texture, and often vibrant colors, too. Much of the work starts out looking somewhat realistic, but then you see it' s really abstract - oh...and they have great food and wine at the openings !! HA HA!! nothing wrong with that! They are always on my go-to list...I hope to buy a piece there someday
