Show/Hide Gallery

By Kate Pancero

Avenue clothier, Chameleon is more than just cool clothes and accessories. It's also an art gallery. Right now, some really fantastic art by Chicagoan lewis lane is decking their walls. Did I mention it's eco-friendly, too? Lane calls it "textural artistic urban recycling." I'm just calling it wonderful.

Lane's work is filled with striking geometric lines, multi-levels, the occasional Chicago touches and a funky square-headed character named 53947. All of the art is made from reclaimed windows and other recycled materials.

Stop by and check it out. Who knows, you might find a piece you can't live without, the guys at Chameleon are totally OK with that. Lewis lane's art will be hanging around Chameleon until Nov. 12.
