Our brick & mortar Paperish Mess, is a storefront and art gallery located in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood. The shop is a retail space showcasing original artwork in a variety of mediums and styles, as well as handmade goods and wares by independent artists. We also feature rotating art shows, gallery installations and community events on a monthly basis!
We've been open since 2012 on Chicago and Damen Ave. We recently moved four doors down from our original location-- same intersection, just a 20 second walk away. So, swing by and check out the new digs at 1945 W. Chicago Ave.
Oh! Paperish Mess is a two-person team, one visual artist/jewelry maker/curator (kind of paperish) & one musician/designer/woodworker (kind of messy).
