Gallery Overview

The River Arts on Water Gallery is a retail gallery and event space dedicated to the cultural and ecological vitality of the Sauk Prairie Community. It features local and regional artists working in various mediums. It is also the administrative office for River Arts Inc. and a ticket outlet for RAI productions.

The Jurying Process

A River Arts on Water panel consisting of the gallery’s two Curators (also artists represented at the gallery), 1 outside juror, and the Executive Director of River Arts, Inc will review applications. The panel’s decision about whom to invite is based on the gallery’s current space and needs. The decision will also include consideration of artistic merit, mastery of style and diversity of approach. Special consideration will be given to work that reflects the local culture and landscape of the Sauk Prairie area.

There is no deadline for submitting artwork.  Artists are juried on an ongoing basis as space becomes available.
