LUX Gallery of Art & Events is the brainchild of Sacha Warholic. This new gallery opened in December of 2004, and brings to Chicago a unique approach to art and culture. The gallery is more than a location… It is a cultural network that brings artists and musicians together in a pairing of intertwined creativity focusing on emerging and established contemporary art and music. LUX works to bring together different mediums-- photography, sculpture, painting, drawing and mixed media to show the power and diversity of art. Thursdays are the event nights at the gallery. The first Thursday will open the month’s art features, while the subsequent Thursdays will showcase the musicians in the LUX Gallery jazz series. The gallery is a place where refinement and creativity are accessible to anyone. The mix of music and art creates an environment that is social and stimulating.

LUX is very excited about the upcoming March show by Derrick Fludd. Mr. Fludd has had shows at the Claudia Hellwich Gallery in Hamburg, Germany and the Art Brick, Salander-O’Reilly Gallery in New York. He will also be included in the 2005 Florence Biennale Fortezza da Basso, Italy. His March show at LUX will be his Chicago debut. It will feature a series called Pathways and large work called “Random Thoughts.” “Random Thoughts” contains 225 6”X 6” canvases that are assembled in varying configurations each time it is shown. When completed, it forms a larger installation that is 96” X 96”. The Pathways series captures the beauty and the mystical/spiritual nature of art as seen through how we experience events. Imagine being able to lie on your back, close your eyes and watch the creation of a single thought. The Pathways show is the type of exciting new art that LUX Gallery will be showcasing. Below is a little more about LUX and Derrick Fludd.
