Event Description

Gilded Pear Gallery is pleased to present the Cedar River Artisans, a collective of  Iowa artists interested in discussion between diverse subject matter and medium. Participating artists include: Dean Dunkel, Robert Fox, Nancy Lindsay, Marty Mitchell, Tom Newport, Elizabeth Rhoads Read and Lou Wendel.

The artists within the collective work independently to each develop their visual style; paintings, ceramics, sculptures, fiber works, and photography are featured in this exhibit. Variance between the works gives the viewer a space to explore and fuels energy in situ. Cedar River Artisans initially started as a group of artists who met weekly over lunch to talk about art and give one another support and advice. Over time, their gatherings evolved to a point where they decided to show together. The coterie has exhibited together across Iowa and beyond since 2011, and, as independent artists, received several awards and merits. Many of the participants’ artworks can be found in corporate and private collections throughout the Midwest.

Gilded Pear Gallery is located at 808 Third Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52403. For hours and more information visit –or- call: 319-366-0205
