Call for Artists: Ankeny Art Center 

The Ankeny Art Center is now taking artist application for the 2015 exhibit year. It is free to apply. 

The Ankeny Art Center has two gallery spaces available for exhibitions. The main gallery is a large open space adequate for hanging sizable works. The side gallery is a more intimate space that is more suitable for smaller shows or shows featuring medium-sized works. Application will be reviewed by the gallery committee in early December and artists will be notified.

Images, application, resume, biography/artist statement, and show theme/proposal can be sent or CD’s can be mailed to 1520 SW Ordnance Road, Ankeny, IA 50023.

Call for Artists: “IOWA ARTISTS ON DISPLAY” Art Program

The law firm of Dickinson, Mackaman, Tyler & Hagen, P.C. is inviting local artists to display their works in our public areas and conference suites on a rotating basis. The program is entitled “Iowa Artists on Display.” This is the third year of the program and it has been a great success for both the firm and the artists. Many artists have sold pieces through the program and have enjoyed the exposure that the program provides, including the “Iowa Artists on Display” Open House we have held the past two years in conjunction with the Des Moines Arts Festival.

Artists who are interested in participating in this program should contact attorney Jeff Andersen at the Firm at515-246-4515. In the alternative, he may be contacted via email at
