The Reif Center's lobby doubles as a visual arts gallery throughout the performance season, offering local and regional artists a fully equipped, high-traffic exhibit area. Three white walls, with Walker System capability, provide more than 500 square feet of accessible, well-lit display space for two-dimensional work, and there are pedestals and cases for 3-D work.
From September to April, exhibits rotate approximately every six weeks, with both solo and group shows. This is a consignment gallery; the Reif handles all sales paperwork and ensures a certain amount of publicity via our playbills, newsletters and periodic coverage by the local media.
In April and May the gallery is home to student artists, with large exhibits by Grand Rapids Middle School and High School art departments.
Artists interested in showing and selling their work at the Reif should have strong work samples and proposals ready to submit. The gallery is typically booked a year in advance. Contact the Reif at 218.327.5780 for more information.

Creating art is a constant challenge to expand how we think, feel and see. I try to make my work suggestive, not explicit. Explicit things aren't interesting to me because they are without mystery. -Liz White
