Live Show on Nov. 27-28, 2021

The GSR Fine Art Festival celebrates the fine arts in the greater Mankato area. We’re committed to creating an outlet for professional artists to connect with the community. More than 50 visual artists display and sell their locally-made, one-of-a-kind work annually at the festival. All sales go directly to the artists.

The GSR Fine Art Festival is a juried show. During the summer of each year, artists submit an application with photos of their work. Artists pay a booth fee to participate and the funds pay for our event space and marketing. All administrative work is done by a team of volunteers.

 

Shop GSR’s Online Gallery Year-Round

The GSR Fine Art Festival’s commitment to creating an outlet for professional artists to connect with the community became even more important during the past year. We are excited to include our artists in an eGallery called ShopART. ShopART is a non commission gallery that gives GSR artists and buyers the opportunity to connect year round.

Supporting Local Arts

The GSR Fine Art Festival is dedicated to presenting an opportunity for the public to engage with creating artists. We encourage and support visual artists by producing an affordable, convenient, professional venue for them to gain exposure and display and sell their works. We also celebrate local musicians by inviting them to perform on our GSR stage.

What does GSR stand for?

This is one of the most common questions we’re asked… the answer lies in our history! One evening in December, 2003, mentor and former apprentices reunited to share their jewelry creations with Mankato. The Goldsmiths Reunion or GSR for short, was created. We’ve come a long way in 19 years! In our first year, we had three artists gather for one evening and in 2020 we launched our new online gallery called ShopART.
