We are dedicated to representing and supporting local artists, both established and emerging, and to bringing quality performance art to our community.

Many of our featured artists are recognized for their work throughout the Chicago metro area and beyond.  Others are emerging artists, whose work you won't find elsewhere.

Ice House Gallery strives towards inclusion, believing that everyone can have a stake in the art community. We’ve curated an array of fine art pieces for our gallery - at all price points - with the goal of creating an environment of art that is universally accessible.

Stop by the gallery to check out the art featured on the first floor, chat with gallery director Hannah, and see our second floor classrooms and studio space.  Learn about Hannah and her vision for the gallery on our News page.

We are located in the heart of South Evanston, just steps from the South Boulevard Purple Line stop.  See our business hours and contact information at the bottom of any page.
