About The Saw Room

The Saw Room

Since 1985, Alley Gallery has helped facilitate healthy art practices. Alley Gallery staff has always been encouraged to develop their work, as well as help local artists frame their work as attractively and economically as possible.

It has been our desire to provide a platform to exhibit stunning original artwork by local artists as space allowed. As the Alley Gallery expanded into part of the old Bookman’s Alley space in 2013, we finally saw the opportunity to make the dream a reality.  We hope that The Saw Room will be a venue that will help cultivate a creative culture in Evanston.

The full official name of this space is the Christopher H. Molloy Memorial Art Gallery, but he always called it “the saw room”, so it stuck.
