Gallery 1756 is in a converted townhouse on a tree-lined street in the heart of Old Town. The building shares space with the architectural offices of gallery owners Bruno Ast and Gunduz Dagdalen, who live upstairs in a wonderful apartment filled with artwork they've collected over the years. Expect to find exhibits by original Old Town neighborhood legends, as well as newcomers from Chicago or the owners' native Turkey. It's a small space loaded with the charm of Dagdalen, who is an architect, art lover and people person. Her hospitality at openings sometimes includes Turkish dishes she creates herself, as well as fascinating people from the consulate or the neighborhood.
