Evanston Made is Popping Up
In Retail Space in Main-Dempster Mile

Evanston, IL -- Evanston Made is hosting “Shop Evanston Made,” a six-month pop up market at the former Lapin Computers location at 832 Dempster Street in Evanston’s Main-Dempster Mile. Evanston Made plans to create a vibrant, art-filled experience for arts enthusiasts and patrons this September through March 2023.

This space is on a busy corner (Dempster and Elmwood) and will join Evanston Made partners like SPACE900, Perspective Gallery and POUR, to bring energy and excitement for the arts to the neighborhood.

“We are always looking for creative uses of vacant spaces that bring art to the community! Evanston Made supports hundreds of creative entrepreneurs in Evanston, and we are thrilled to be able to take them to market,” says Lisa Degliantoni, Executive Director of Evanston Made.

The pop up market will feature art exhibits and pop up sales of handmade goods by Evanston Made members in addition to “Meet the Makers” nights, mixers, art demos and more. The programming calendar will be available at evanstonmade.org.

Katherine Gotsick, Executive Director of Main-Dempster Mile: “This is a fantastic activation of a vacant space, and we're eager to host Evanston Made, its events and artists! We can't wait to see what they have on their calendar, and to have them participate in our events too. We're sure they will attract lots of new people to the neighborhood, and the surrounding businesses are thrilled  to have them as neighbors.”

“Evanston Made can utilize any space to create opportunities for artists and creative entrepreneurs to connect with new audiences. We are grateful to Main Dempster Mile for the support and enthusiasm” says Liz Cramer, Co-Director of Evanston Made.

Evanston Made will announce further details about the pop up market and special events at evanstonmade.org and on Facebook and Instagram.

Members can visit evanstonmade.org for information on how to sign up to participate.

Evanston Made Launches Exhibition Series Across Evanston 

Press Release - 

Evanston Made’s Annual Members Group Show is a celebration of the diversity and talent of its members. Since becoming a nonprofit arts organization in 2019, Evanston Made has experienced explosive growth with membership growing to almost 400 artists and artisans. 

In 2021, Evanston Made’s Annual All Members Group Show at the Evanston Art Center exhibited 179 works of contemporary art, a curatorial and blocking feat, but a tremendous amount of art to exhibit in one space. 

“Evanston Made has outgrown the “All Member’s Group Show” at the Evanston Art Center, this is a wonderful problem to have. This year we’re taking the “shows” on the road and plan to host exhibits across Evanston,” says Lisa Degliantoni, Evanston Made’s Founder and Executive Director. 

With the help of an Advisory Council, Evanston Made plans to host an exhibit series in support of its members, curated by affinity groups such as 2D, BIPOC, fiber, etc. The series will invite members to display work at one show.

Kicking off exhibit series June 1, is the BIPOC Members Exhibit at Evanston Art Center, featuring contemporary art works across several mediums. Curated by Artist and Community Activist Fran Joy, Evanston Made and Evanston Art Center will donate their portion of sales proceeds, paying artists 100% of art sales. The exhibit will be on display thru June 30, and will host public programming throughout the month. Click here to see call for art.

 “Supporting and promoting BIPOC artists and curators is a priority of mine and I am honored to collaborate with Evanston Made in the beautiful Evanston Art Center,” Fran Joy, artist and curator.

“The Evanston Art Center is honored and thrilled to be partnering with Evanston Made again this June. This partnership is incredibly meaningful to us, as it provides artists the opportunity to exhibit their artwork to friends, family, fellow artists, curators and art enthusiasts. There is an abundance of compelling and thought-provoking artwork made by our talented Evanston art community, and we look forward to sharing it!” Paula Danoff, President & CEO, Evanston Art Center.

This exhibition series will continue through October at various locations throughout Evanston, with exhibits for all of our members to participate in; 2D, Mixed Media/Fiber/3D, Emerging Artists. Standby for calls for art.

Evanston Made’s mission is to connect Evanston creatives to a growing community of arts patrons and fans.
