Ian Sherwin Gallery is a space for private events, classes, and learning. An art dojo for all mediums, and an open space for artists and community to utilize the space for gatherings and connection.
Ian M. Sherwin is a visual and culinary artist. He is a 2000 graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, which he attended on full scholarship. He is a contract artist for the Field Museum, designing programs for children and families that are at the intersection of art and science. His teaching experience spans 20 years and includes CPS Schools, private institutions, and within his own art galleries. He is also passionate about art as therapy through his work with special needs children . Several years ago, Ian lost the sight in one of his eyes and had to re-learn to draw. Based on the circumstances of his vision, he explored new materials which led to painting. He continues to complete private commissions in painting and drawing and recently featured his work in the L.A. BE MINE art show sponsored by L’art Pour L’art. Ian's "Paint Your Pet" class has been featured in The Chicago Tribune, and he has been a speaker on "Pricing Your Work" for the annual Self Employment In The Arts Conference.
Ian trained under Chef Denise Graffeo in culinary arts at the Eastern Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass. You can see Ian living his culinary dreams on The Great Food Truck Race Season 9 on The Food Network.
