Pioneers of the Near North Side, River North Gallery District in the early 1980s, Ann and Roy Boyd started out in a loft-style space on Superior and then bought the building that now houses their gallery and their fantastic apartment upstairs. Exhibits are on two levels and there's a charming little sculpture garden in the back. Most of the gallery's artists are from Illinois, have advanced degrees and supplement their creative activity with positions as professors in colleges or universities. A former teacher herself, Ann Boyd is very capable and patient in explaining the artwork. Because both of the Boyds have close relationships with their carefully chosen stable of artists, they always offer additional insights into the creative process of each piece. The gallery is a member of the Chicago Art Dealers Association ( and Roy has served on its Board of Directors.
