We create engagement between Evanston’s visual arts community and the public.

Artist Galleries

All member artists have a page created on evanstonmade.org featuring a sampling of their art, a selfie and short artist statement, as well as links to their professional website.


Evanston Made hosts artist events throughout the year. We organize and promote First Saturday Art Events every month. We sponsor studio tours and collaborations with retail hosts, host pop up shows and workshops to name just a few examples of what we offer our members. A city wide studio tour in June, along with the month long Evanston Made group show at the Evanston Arts Center (the venue's biggest event of the year) is one of the biggest arts events in the city. And we have bigger visions for the future.


Our goal is to provide Evanston artists with links and recommendations for all the services they may need. In addition to our calendar of events, we provide a current listing of framers, photographers, as well as call-for-artists and more.


Our arts community is a big part of what makes Evanston so unique. We are a city teeming with highly educated culturally engaged neighbors! We encourage and facilitate collaborations with corporate and individual members of the public to keep our arts robust. Please consider becoming a sponsor!


"Membership has its privileges," as members of Evanston Made surely know! Membership fees designed for artists, businesses and patron guarantee entry and/or participation in events all year round, as well as resources and news. Please click on the membership page for more details.


Our calendar is the one-stop you need to know what's happening today, what's starting tomorrow and what you should pencil in for next month. And we invite the public to enter their events in the interactive feature of our Evanston Made Calendar.
