ABOUT IOWA ARTISANS GALLERY
An Iowa City fixture for over 33 years
Midwestern artists are our specialty
The gallery is a full-service retail business, offering phone and web orders, layaway, specialty wraps and special orders. Our gifts and home décor pieces are unique, personal, and American made. Gift boxing is always free, and your purchases accrue towards our Artisans Club Program. We offer special exhibitions, classes and participate in community art-based events such as Gallery Walk and other Iowa City Downtown District events.
Iowa Artisans Gallery was founded in 1984 by twelve artists, shown in this archive photo. Five founders continued to serve as owners until May 2017, when the gallery transitioned to a new ownership team - including Kaylene Fitzpatrick Carney, Patrick Carney and Annie Temple. Many of the gallery’s loyal staff persons are also artists.
