We host exhibitions, organized by a member of our board or a community volunteer. These are an opportunity to provide awareness and education to the wider community about the works, thought process, and to encourage dialogue on creative practices with artists and the community in which they live and work. It is an important part of how we carry out the mission of Driftless Art Collective.
The mission of Driftless Art Collective, a 501(c)(3) organization, is to empower the people and artists of our region to network and foster partnerships so they can together create stronger art-related events, cultural activities, and educational opportunities in the Northeast Iowa Driftless Region.
Exhibitions are made possible through Membership to Driftless Art Collective. Join us as a Creative Community Member, choosing the Exhibitions option and your exhibition fee is waived during the year of your membership. This counts towards group and individual exhibitions. Scholarships for exhibitions may be possible with sponsorship by a local business. Please get in touch to discuss this option.
Artists are also featured during their exhibition through Artist Spotlights on our website.
To submit an exhibition proposal, please read through the guidelines and submit via email or post. >>Call for exhibition proposals.
Currently we operate exhibitions in downtown Decorah. If you are a member of a community in our coverage area that could benefit from a Dartco organized space, please get in touch.
