Get to know us

Our journey began when Winna Bernard, a social worker from Washington County, came into the ceramics studio at the Eagan center of Midwest Special Services (MSS), a nonprofit organization that serves people with disabilities. Winna saw a bowl that was made by artist Connie Bassett and said immediately, “This needs to be on display somewhere!” Winna and MSS shared the dream of a gallery where artists of all backgrounds could display their work in a professional setting. Since then the gallery has undergone a few transformations. We have grown from a small room to a cavernous gallery and now we are in a space of our very own. Our new location at 346 N. Sibley St. opened in September of 2016.
