Connecting WithArt

For the past 18 years, the GSR Fine Art Festival has been giving buyers the opportunity to interact with professional artists working in a multiplicity of mediums as well as find unique goods and gifts that are handmade. This tradition continues in 2020 only now it is online at ShopART—GSR’s new online gallery.

GSR moving on online gallery for 2020

The GSR Fine Art Festival’s commitment to creating an outlet for professional artists to connect with the community becomes even more important during times like this. We are excited to be launching an eGallery called ShopART on Nov. 20. ShopART is a non commission gallery that now gives GSR artists and buyers the opportunity to connect year round. You will be able to find works from the artists you have enjoyed viewing, visiting with and shopping from at the festival over the past 18 years plus some new faces.

COVID has changed everyone’s world. We would have loved to have been in Mankato this November but it was just not possible. We hope you continue to support the artists through ShopART. Thank you.

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 18 years! In our first year, we had three artists gather for one evening and in 2020 we are welcoming more than 35 artists to help us launch our new online gallery called ShopART.
