Eat Paint Studio is a storefront gallery located on the near north side of Chicago. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, noon – 5pm.
Please note: We will be closed December 16 through January 8.
Emily Rapport created the Eat Paint Studio moniker around 2003 as a catch-all for her fine art and arts-related web design projects. The name is intended as a positive “seize the day” invocation as well as an ironic reference to the romantic myth of the artist who subsists on creative passion alone.
Emily studied art in the late 90’s at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Seeking involvement in a creative community, Emily became significantly involved in the foundation of what has become the “Ravenswood Art Walk,” an annual tour of arts and industry in Ravenswood Corridor. She has worked with representatives of the Chicago arts community, including the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the Chicago Artists’ Coalition, in working to reform burdensome city ordinances as they relate to creative practices.
The space at 5036 N Lincoln is the hub of current Eat Paint Studio creative endeavors, from digital projects to oil painting. A gallery and working studio, we are excited to create an accessible art experience for all!
