There is something about the Douglas Dawson Gallery, which is very appealing, their aesthetics, colors, the arts they offer. Somehow I have always found them to be extremely interesting. I have earlier seen at Art Chicago, Merchandise Mart in 2010 [click here] and 2011 [click here..]
Here is link to Douglas dawson Gallery's official website.,. click here..

The Explore Chicago website has this to say.. click here..
Located in Chicago since 1982, Douglas Dawson Gallery is dedicated to ancient and historic non-Western art, particualrly textiles, sculpture, ceramics and furniture from Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
