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 17 years! In our first year, we had three artists gather for one evening and in 2019 we welcomed more than 50 artists for a two-day event.
