29 years ago I opened the DLG
with the simple idea of helping people to collect art
Fall rolled in unexpectedly and now you can stay warm with our “Red Hot Art”!
October 1, 1991 I moved on to Paulina Street to open the David Leonardis Gallery and help people to collect art. I already had a nack for it and had been selling art since early 1990. I realized early on that having a lot of art around had a magical effect on me and the people around me. Now in my 30th year “selling the happy fun art to the cool people from Paulina St.” I realize it’s been working.
Everyone for 29 years still tells me the wonderful effects the art they collected from me had on them and their lives. That’s why I do this. I get a kick out of that. I’m happy to help.
The DLG is mask mandatory and we have spray-on hand sanitizer. It’s been a pretty quick adjustment but I’ve noticed that people are coming in because they’re hungry for art. They have to have it.
We’re not really having gallery receptions per se but you’re more than welcome to come on in and have a socially distant viewing of the DLG, a couple PBRs and pick-up some new art for your collection during your staycation.
Especially in times like these I know how important it is to have fantastic original art in your home. Right about now all of you are realizing that too!
I can turn you into an important art collector in 15 minutes if you’re up for the challenge. **Spoiler Alert** The winner of the challenge is you!
The new David Leonardis Galleries website is awesome.
We are continuously updating it and adding new art works and information for your consideration.
The DLG is now almost fully e-commerce capable. Just hover over the title and price and you can automatically pay using your card with Square or Google Pay.
We are also excited to announce that David Leonardis Gallery is now on Artsy.net. Check us out on this exciting internationally relevant arts platform. The super cool part is the art we carry on Artsy is more expensive. So all the art at the DLG just went up in value. I always say, “The collector should only buy the art if they love it. However if they’re buying it from a savvy art dealer who’s job is to raise the prices well then there’s nothing wrong with that”!
So start browsing and keep on buying!
Stay safe!Yours in Art!My very best,David Leonardis312-863-9045www.DLGalleries.comwww.artsy.net/david-leonardis-gallery

The museums, located in various corners of the world, dedicated to this great American painter stand as testament to his influence as an artist and as a human being. Born in Chicago in 1932. Matt Lamb dedicated the last half of his life to using art to spread his message of peace, tolerance, hope, communication, and love among human kind. When you own the art of Matt Lamb you not only own great art, you own a significant part of the global effort to bring peace to humankind which is a big deal in and of itself.
