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.

CURRENT / UPCOMING SHOW
HORIZON: 15 ARTISTS FROM THE IOWA CITY PRESS CO-OP
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.
About Iowa City Press Co-op:
The Iowa City Press Co-op is a project of Public Space One, an organization working to provide independent, diverse, and inclusive spaces and resources for making and presenting art in Iowa City. ICPC is a volunteer-run community print and book studio at PS1 that provides access to equipment, education, opportunities, and community focused on printmaking and book arts for individuals from a spectrum of backgrounds and experiences. In addition to a year-round schedule of workshops, ICPC's projects have included an exhibition of print-based installations, public printmaking events, and the ICPC Cookbook, a print portfolio and exchange.
