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.

Current Show

Rusty Fork – The Art of Kevin Eldstrom: August 24, 2019 – September 28, 2019

Come and meet the artist Tuesdays 11am – 4pm (8/27, 9/3, 9/10, 9/17, 9/24) and Saturdays 11am – 4pm (8/31, 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28)

We are very proud and excited to feature the talent of artist, Kevin Eldstrom, here at the Rumriver Art Center Gallery. The artwork Kevin will be showing is a combination of aluminum and machine fabricated ceramic items. His artwork explores the interaction between molten aluminum and ceramic vessels.

To create his pieces, Kevin melts and pours liquid aluminum onto the ceramic vessels. The intensity of the heat causes the ceramic vessel to shatter but at the same time the cracks fill with aluminum before the aluminum cools and solidifies. Please join us in the celebration of his work!

A Rusty Fork will be open at the Rumriver Art Center Gallery through September 28.
