Mark Rinehart's METALS IN MOTION, summer 2016

Stewart Gallery

Formerly housed in the Community Center as the Mayor's Art Gallery, the Stewart Gallery has been a core component of the visual arts in Grinnell for over a quarter of a century.  

The gallery hosts a new show about once a month, featuring the work of local and regional artists as well as students from the community schools and our own Studio 6 program.

See below for information on the current or upcoming show.

Horizon  is a body of work from 15 Iowa City Press Co-op members working in and beyond the medium of printmaking.

For this group show, we imagined a constraint as much as a theme: the idea of the horizon both within each work and as an element that would tie all the works together within the gallery space. Horizon is also a nod to the distance between Grinnell and Iowa City and, like any good horizon, it’s just down the road, just keep going!  The horizon manifests as both a formal consideration as well as a symbolic one; it is a utopian place, almost always visible and always some distance away.  The constraint of “a horizon,” whether subtle, explicit, or imaginary was mostly heeded.
