Dubuque art gallery hosts fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

One new eastern Iowa art gallery is raising money in order to further the arts in the city it is located in. The Nash Art Gallery in Dubuque is a not-for-profit art gallery that displays local artwork. The gallery is run by volunteers and open to the public free of charge on Saturdays and Sundays. On Saturday afternoon and evening, the gallery hosted a fundraiser in order to raise funds for the gallery.

Trisha Feldman-Jensen is Director of the Nash Gallery. She says the funds will help go towards building maintenance.

"We need a way to sustain the expenses of the gallery," she said. "Rent, utilities, operating issues, Internet, office supplies and T-shirts."

The Nash Gallery is a part of the blooming arts community in Dubuque.

"We are trying to create a different avenue along with the existing galleries," Feldman-Jensen said. "Bring more avant-garde work to the area along with a space available for emerging artists."
