Chicago Fire defender Dan Gargan has made news on the field as an automatic starter at for his club, but he keeps drawing notice off the field for his artwork too.

Gargan drew notice earlier this season with the terrific video he put together looking at Chicago’s preseason preparation for the MLS season. Last week, one of his paintings was on display at an art exhibit called “Art of Futbol” that brought together various pieces of artwork focused on the sport. (If we had a picture of the painting, we’d show it.)

Elsewhere, Harrisburg midfielder Morgan Langley scored his first goal of the regular season in a 4-0 blowout over Dayton, while a Philly face-off took place in Colorado, with Jeff Larentowicz’s club drawing even with Kansas City.
