Show Dates

Each artist is given a month to show their work. All work is installed before the first day of the month, and removed 2 days before the month’s end, i.e. July 30 install for Aug. 1 show. Installation dates and times are coordinated with the previous month artist.


Art must be wired and ready to install. Framing not required, just wire in the back.


Send images of the work Evanston Made, info@evanstonmade.org, and we will send you a graphic to promote. We ask that you notify your network of the exhibit too.


Participating Businesses

Evanston businesses can show support for Evanston Artists by joining Evanston Made as Partners. In addition to exhibiting 2D art by our members, we invite Partners to host member’s mixers, receptions, and be a site for First Saturday Art Events – all of this builds community with Evanston businesses and customers who prioritize supporting Evanston small businesses.
