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 artists (must live within 30 miles) working in a wide variety of mediums. It is also the administrative office for River Arts Inc. (RAI) 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 not affiliated with the organization, and River Arts, Inc staff 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.
