Today's Critical Mass Chicago is going to be a very snowy one for Chicago's diehard winter bikers. The monthly rides from Daley Plaza that take over the streets get thinner in the winter months, but this Friday there's an art opening waiting at the end of the ride. Galerie F is hosting the first part of the 16th Annual Bike Winter Art Show.

The show will include a wide range of work—prints, photographs, sculpture, installation, and video are all accepted—the only stipulation for the show is that it it must be bicycle themed or inspired. The opening is tonight from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at Galerie F in Logan Square.

The second part of the Bike Winter Art Show will be hosted March 15 at a new exhibition & event space in Humboldt Park called C-Haus. It will feature a fashion show with bike fashion and jewelry from local designers. They are still accepting submissions through March 10 for designers who would like to participate.

Galerie F is located at 2381 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
