Drawing from their comprehensive experience, Hex Parsons and Fabian Sotelo are uniquely positioned to bring Evoke to life. As Chicago natives, they have a deep-rooted love for their city and a commitment to propelling local talent. With backgrounds in community organizing, arts education, and LGBTQ+ advocacy, they are dedicated to creating a space where every voice is heard and every artist is celebrated.

It's more than just a space; it's a dynamic hub designed to empower artists, unite diverse voices, and inspire the community. Evoke’s mission—to empower underrepresented voices, particularly within the black and brown Queer community, and to celebrate the fusion of art and unity for transformative change.

We believe that art has the power to catalyze social shifts and foster greater understanding and empathy. Through exhibitions, workshops, and community events, we strive to create a platform for marginalized artists to share their stories and perspectives with the world.

Evoke aims to strengthen the cultural fabric of our city and provide a platform for emerging talent to thrive. By supporting Evoke, you're not just supporting a gallery—you're investing in the future of Chicago's art scene and ensuring that our city remains a vibrant and dynamic cultural beacon.



At Evoke, our team is comprised of passionate individuals dedicated to creating a dynamic and inclusive space for artists and art enthusiasts alike.

Together, our team is dedicated to propelling Chicago artists, celebrating diversity, and fostering meaningful connections within our community. We're passionate about creating spaces that empower and inspire, and we look forward to welcoming you to Evoke Gallery.
