Bringing Together Local Artists and the Green Bay Community Since 2006
Located in downtown Green Bay, The Art Garage gallery has been part of the Olde Main Street Arts District since its founding as an arts center in 2006. From that time, it has provided a historical, unique venue with a casual atmosphere where the public can view and purchase art work created by local Green Bay and surrounding area artists. Guests can enjoy a new solo or group exhibition each month, in our front gallery, as well as original artwork from various local artists every 2 months. Each piece of artwork supports a local artist and The Art Garage gallery, a non-profit, and its efforts to keep this unique community tradition alive. The Art Garage gallery is open 4 days a week, Thursday through Sunday.
Here at The Art Garage, we have 2 different gallery spaces, the "Front Gallery" and the "Side Gallery". The "Front Gallery" shows are selected by The Art Garage staff and Board of Directors from interested local artists, art groups, etc.. These artists and artist groups submit an applications and are reviewed immediately for the next available month opening. Applications should include an exhibit proposal, artist statement, and 6 high-quality images of current artwork (or images of artwork submitted for this specific exhibition). The "Front Gallery" changes out monthly and features an artist reception each month! The "Side Gallery" is for artists who submit their artwork to our bi-monthly changing, themed Calls For Art. These show themes are developed by The Art Garage Board of Directors and are juried by 3 local, art professionals. Our mission is to encourage the appreciation for and participation in the visual, performing, and literary arts. With this in mind, the gallery serves as a catalyst for culture, community engagement, and art education, providing a rotating calendar of exhibits featuring local artwork from the Green Bay and surrounding areas.
