Gillock Gallery is an artist-friendly space created in 2001 to serve the North Shore of the Chicago area. Formerly located in a Victorian era estate, the gallery is currently located at 636 Church Street in Evanston while also developing an additional space in Chicago. It’s come a long way from the house gallery it was in the beginning. Now, in 2008, with participation in art fairs, frequent shows and receptions, and artist talks, Gillock Gallery is steadily increasing its dynamic presence. Adding to this will be the exciting factor of having two guest-curators create one show each per season.
Gillock Gallery has always attempted to advocate for young artists by showcasing and promoting their developing work. From traditional representational painting to mixed media works and photography, the gallery continues to mount quality shows. In addition, Gillock has tried to draw new viewers into the Chicago art community without a hard, sales-driven approach. By providing alternative presentations of artworks, facilitating discussion, and building community among artists and viewers, Gillock strives to heighten the profiles of its artists in the Chicago metro area and beyond.
