We're easy to reach by car or public transportation. Our office is twelve miles north of downtown Chicago in the suburb of Evanston

We moved our gallery in the summer of 2017 and are now available by appointment. We're in an office in the same building (1937 Central Street, Evanston) only up one flight

Office hours:

Hours are by appointment. Our address is 1937 Central Street, Suite 2B, Evanston. We're often in Tuesday through Saturday afternoons, but it's always best to call ahead.

Driving directions:

We're only 30 minutes from downtown Chicago via the Kennedy and Edens Expressways (I-94) or by Lake Shore Drive and Sheridan Road.

Our office is ten minutes from the Edens Expressway (I-94). Exit at Old Orchard and drive east about 1˝ miles to Crawford. At Crawford turn left (north) for one block to Central Street. Turn right (east) on Central; it's just over a mile to our gallery.

If you're near Chicago's lakefront, you can take Lake Shore Drive and Sheridan Road to Central Street in Evanston. We're just over a mile west of Sheridan.

Metered parking is available on Central Street and in a lot one block west of us. Free parking can be found on neighborhood streets. Please observe all parking signs carefully. Evanston enforces its parking regulations with vigor. If you park seven feet from a driveway when the sign says no parking within eight feet, you will get a ticket!
