Team Art! Will Be at Art Chicagos Next Art Fair

Team Art! Will Be at Art Chicagos Next Art Fair 

More than an art fair, NEXT is a showcase for the world’s talents and an adventure in innovative culture. An opportunity to redefine the relationship between art and its public,NEXT is a platform for established and emerging galleries to promote the work of cutting-edge artists.  NEXT is dedicated to the exhibition and advancement of today's art.  NEXTis the catalyst for the exchange of information and experimental ideas aimed at today's educated collectors.

For the second year in a row we have made it happen we will be showing are art at one of the worlds largest art events. Last year we made our debut as Allen Vandevers Project space and had great success. The art world used to seam like this mystical place that was only found in fairy tales. Last year we discovered this land and it was as strange and bizarre but magical and beautiful. I hope you come visit us wile secure our foot hold and place in the art world.

Team Art! Needs You

This is a call to artists, activists, freethinkers, the socially conscious without title or affiliation, and those that have an insurmountable drive to create and inspire; the only criterion is that you be open to be both peer and student in our community.Currently, we are equipped with painters, photographers, writers, filmmakers, musicians, and professional students of life.  And, we believe our communitys conscious growth is boundless, as long as we spur continual growth through challenge.  Thus, many of us have numerous projects underway that need additional manpower.
My name is Allen Vandever co founder of TEAM ART!I have been a struggling painter for, what seems to me, all of my life, and I feel I have finally reached a point where my body of work reflects my philosophy, as well as the sensations and the passion behind the inexplicable visions of my dreams.  Last year we were in Art Chicago's NEXT art fair as Allen Vandever's project space, we were also in Art on Track and Verge Basel Miami along with other shows. These were great opportunity's to reveal our work to the world, We will be doing much the same This year starting with Art Chicago's NEXT art fair and Allen Vandevers 2nd Annual Art Extravaganza April 29th at Cafe Baci 225 W Walker Chicago.   
Every Friday we host an Art Walk through various galleries in Chicago.  This weekly event started when a few of us gathered to attend some openings to drink free booze while nibbling on semi-expensive cheese and crackers.  That humble beginning inspired great conversation, unforgettable intrigue, and of course, camaraderie.  We invite you to be a part of this merriment and exploration.  For information of gathering time and location, please shoot me an e-mail at
You can also support us by following our projects and sending us your feedback.  You are also welcome to simply send us a word of encouragement, or admonishment if you ever see our momentum waver

We hope you are moved to join our community.  Thanks for listening.
Allen Vandever
