Jan Johansen Gallery

The Rumriver Art Gallery was initiated to support and show local artists’ work. One issue many artists experience is where to show their work as gallery space can be limited, especially to those who are just starting. Our mission with the gallery is to support and show the artwork of local artists. The shows are changed every month, providing many opportunities throughout the year for artists to display their work. The Art Gallery brings the community together and creates a greater appreciation for art. Selected artwork may be available for sale. For 2022 the Rumriver Art Center Gallery is named The Jan Johansen Gallery for all her contributions as an artist and supporter of the Rumriver Art Center.

Thank you so much to Jan Johansen for your generous donation and for sponsoring our art gallery for 2022!

Next Gallery Show: Snapshots of a Mind Set Free

The Jan Johansen Gallery at Rumriver Art Center (2665 4th Ave, Suite 103A) will be hosting a new art show titled: Snapshots of a Mind Set Free. The show opening is Saturday, July 16, 2022, from 2pm-4pm. Gallery hours after the show opening are Monday-Friday from 9:30am-3:00pm and select Saturdays with an artist talk on Saturday, July 30 from 2-4pm.
Meet the Artists: Check out the show and visit with Cherene and/or Christine on Saturday 7/23 (1pm – 4pm), Saturday 7/30 (1pm – 5pm), and Saturday 8/6 (1pm – 4pm).
The gallery show will feature the artwork of artist and mentor, Cherene Bebeau and her mentee, Christine Tauer. They participated in Rumriver Art Center’s 2021-2022 Emerging Artist Mentorship Program for Older Adults Ages 55+. The purpose of the artist mentorship program is to provide older adults who never had the opportunity to find their artistic voice during their youth a chance to explore and find it now.
Applicants selected one medium they wanted to focus on during their mentorship experience, and they were paired with a local artist who is very skilled and experienced with their selected medium. The mentors and mentees met together multiple times a month at or outside the art center over a nine month period. Mentors helped their mentee develop as an artist through assessing their strengths and weaknesses as well as through collaboration, the implementation of strategies, and evaluation along the way. Mentees worked with their mentors to set goals for themselves and for their work.
This gallery show is a culminating event that showcases the artwork, growth, and accomplishments that took place during the mentorship program experience. Both Cherene Bebeau (Mentor) and Christine Tauer (Mentee) will be displaying their mixed media work in a shared gallery show. We are very proud and excited to feature the talents of Cherene Bebeau and Christine Tauer at the Jan Johansen Art Gallery. Please join us in the celebration of their work. The show will be on display through August 6, 2022.
