    VibrantCast, an art collective founded by couple Steve and Elva Arend, showcases the work of local artists across two galleries in the Lincoln Avenue strip mall.

    NORTH CENTER — When Chinese restaurant House of Wah Sun left its longtime home at 4313 N. Lincoln Ave. to move to Irving Park, neighbors wondered what would become of the small strip mall near Lincoln and Cullom avenues.
    They can stop wondering: A new art gallery with an emphasis on local artists has taken over the space.

    VibrantCast is an imaginative transformation of not only the former restaurant but also another vacant spot in the same plaza. The two spaces now house the “traditional” Vibrant Gallery, 4313 N. Lincoln Ave., and Fusion Gallery, 4319 N. Lincoln Ave., intended for multimedia exhibits and unique themes, according to the VibrantCast website. Its first event was held in late June.
