We are a multi-faceted art space serving as a gallery on the first floor and offering rentable work space, art storage, and a lighting studio on the second. Featuring local and Evanston-loving artists, our gallery conjoins an assortment of art, reflective of the city’s varied community. Thanks to our goal of providing affordable art, anyone can find a piece that speaks to their personal taste and fits their budget. When creativity beckons, don’t hesitate to indulge the right brain with a studio rental or, if you need a bit of guidance, an art class. Ice House Gallery has a heartbeat that extends beyond the art hung on the walls. In the future, expect to see the gallery building brimming with life through performance and spoken-word acts as well as evening events showcasing non-physical arts.

The name “Ice House Gallery” is derived from the history of the building - it originally served as cold storage for massive blocks of ice set to be distributed throughout the surrounding area. Though the interior has been totally renovated, the high ceilings and enormous windows perfectly suit this new venture. Art buyers and admirers alike are sure to appreciate the artworks displayed in our aesthetically unique space.
