About Us
Lillstreet Gallery is the gallery and exhibition space within Lillstreet Art Center. Located in the gorgeous, art-loving Ravenswood neighborhood on Chicago’s north side, Lillstreet Art Center occupies a three-story converted gear factory. Founded in 1975, Lillstreet is a large community of artists and students working side by side in a friendly environment that encourages and inspires artistic growth in the individual. Lillstreet Art Center supports the arts through our education program, artist residencies, gallery exhibitions and retail sales opportunities, studio rentals, and arts-based professional development.

Lillstreet Gallery consists of three exhibition spaces: the Main Gallery, the Annex Gallery, and the Rooftop Gallery. The Main Gallery at Lillstreet represents emerging and established artists working in ceramics, metalsmithing, painting, and more, with an additional 1,000 square feet adjacent to the exhibition space dedicated to sellable work in these mediums. The Annex Gallery represents emerging and established Lillstreet artists and community members working in a variety of mediums. The Rooftop Gallery is a unique, one-of-a-kind exhibition space, hosting artists from around the country and inviting them to install work onto four 9-foot flagpoles on top of Lillstreet’s rooftop deck.
