The mission of the Art Connective is to offer a space for unrepresented artists to connect, learn, exhibit, and teach, and by doing so providing a place for the community to gain appreciation of and inspiration from their works.
We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
The gallery is a place for artists to meet other artists. It is also a space for the community to meet, learn and see local artists working. This includes but it not limited to collaborating on a project, artist commissions, taking an artist led workshop, growing their network and building a support system. The local community is able to meet and talk to artists showcasing their artwork during our special events which include artist opening receptions, Patio Pop-Up Events, De Pere Art Walk, and more.
Being an artist is more than creating. As an artist managing your business is key to being successful. We help you learn how to be better organized, price your artwork, successfully enter call for arts, market yourself and much more. We do this via a free podcast, in person workshops, & one on one mentoring. We believe that learning never stops and we want you to be successful while doing what you love.
The gallery offers a brick and mortar space for artists in the United States to showcase and sell their artwork in a professional manner. When you show your work in a gallery you are able to connect with a new audience, build your resume and share your artwork with the public. Understanding how to create a final piece of artwork for presentation is very important for artists along with following guidelines set forth by a gallery. We believe all levels of artists should have the opportunity and our call for art group shows are open to artists ages 18 and up.
