About ShopART Midwest

ShopART Midwest exists to connect anyone who enjoys fine art with regional artists. Our curatorial team ensures that consistent, quality work is available to anyone who appreciates living with handcrafted, fine art objects and experiences. Our artists are all highly skilled, and work in a wide variety of disciplines. Painters, jewelers, ceramicists, writers, musicians, performers and more are all here—ready to offer excellent artwork and services.

Buyers are connected directly to the artist for sales. ShopART does not handle transactions. This allows 100% of each sale to go directly to the artist which supports our local creative economy.

Our History

Grown out of a partnership between the GSR Fine Art Festival and the Twin Rivers Council for the Arts, ShopART Midwest continues their shared commitment to celebrate fine arts in the Upper Midwest while supporting more professional artists and connecting them to a broader community.

ShopART  Midwest is an artist-centric, non-commission gallery that connects artists to new audiences all year round. Now the familiar artists from the GSR Fine Art Festival are joined by artists from across the Midwest.

Support Organizations

TWIN RIVER COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS
The mission of Twin Rivers is to create an atmosphere or environment that supports creatives, educates the community on the value of the creative sector and integrates the arts into the fabric of our lives.

Our vision is to build strong communities through the collective power of creativity. We are working to broaden the definition of what creative work is and who is doing that work. In the 21st century, creative work includes software design, sound and lighting technicians, photographers, culinary artists and bloggers, just to name a few. We want to invite YOU to take your place at the table and find support and opportunities for growth within our expanding creative ecosystem.
