About Mars Gallery

More than 25 years ago, Mars Gallery opened up shop in Chicago’s West Loop, pioneering a new neighborhood for the city’s artists. Our owners helped found a new art enclave that today is a destination for art lovers across the country.

Housed in a 19th century all-brick timber loft, the gallery is home to a wonderful variety of art and artists, including contemporary, modern pop art, abstract, figurative and more. Its three stories are packed with art, displayed on every surface, even suspended from the ceilings.

The staff of Mars Gallery welcomes anyone with a curious spirit. Whether you’re an experienced art collector, or you’re just beginning to find your eye, we’re thrilled to help you find works that fill your home with inspiration and spark engaging conversation. Our staff is known for having exquisite taste, and we take care to ensure you choose artwork you’ll love for a lifetime.

Mars Gallery isn’t just one of Chicago’s most venerable art galleries. We also offer a completely uncommon event space for your next wedding, fundraiser, birthday party—anything you can imagine!

Owner Barbara Gazdik and the rest of our staff will assist you in creating an incredible event, giving your guests the chance to mingle amongst the work of some of Chicago’s top artists, and become immersed in one the city’s most creative neighborhoods for the night. Our goal: for your event planning experience to be easy and fun, and to create memories for a lifetime for you and your guests.

    Mars Gallery was an amazing venue for our wedding reception. We utilized both the main gallery floor, as well as the upper dance floor space. Great rental rate, and the ability to bring in our own food and liquor. Planning was so easy and staff was exceptional and professional. Highly recommended!

    Lovely small and cool venue! The staff is really what makes this place -- they were very accommodating and helpful before and especially during the event. Barbara met with me several times and was happy to help me make my wedding dreams come true and suggest excellent (and affordable) services to help me do it. Wait until you see the price!
