Leslie Wolfe Gallery

The Leslie Wolfe Gallery offers artists and visitors, alike, the opportunity to explore and discover. Each month a new artist is given the reins to exhibit their personal style of artwork in our public space. The Gallery is a program of the Old Town Triangle Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Artists interested in exhibiting can learn more in the “Call For Artists” section.


The Leslie Wolfe Gallery continues to break new ground by offering exhibit space for emerging artists, students, instructors, and established artists. Exhibits are on display for four weeks, kicked off with a weekend reception. The Gallery is named after local artist and community advocate, Leslie Wolfe, who was dedicated to the arts and artists. Her passion is reflected in the jury’s selections each month.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-1.

Angela McElwain & Sheryl Nieman

Opening Reception: Sunday, March 10 | 2 – 4 PM
Exhibition: March 1 to March 28

Angela A. McElwain is a multi-media artist whose studio is in Chicago. Her media includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, and, recently, graphic novels. She was an Artist in Residence in Chicago when she created and installed a series of interior murals for the Logan Square Library. The selected work is from Angela McElwain’s NAL (Not A Landscape) Series. The work is drawn from real places which are then reimagined with color, texture, and atmosphere creating a sensation, mood or energy. No landscape exists here except for the one implied in the imagination.

Sheryl Nieman is a painter working in oils and acrylics. Her canvases are chosen to compliment the story being told and have varied from linen, muslin, board, and glass to walls, ceilings, floors, and objects. Her current style of painting has an obvious division of space, no longer a dash or a dot but a fragmentation using line and flow to divide areas of color. The effects of color and light are examined and explored to create the appropriate mood of the story.
