Iowa Artisans Gallery was founded in 1984 by twelve artists. Five founders still serve as owners, and many staff persons are also artists. The Gallery is a full service retail business, offering phone orders, web orders, layaway, approvals, specialty wraps and special orders. Our gifts and home decor pieces are unique, personal, and American made. Gift boxing is always free, and your purchases accrue towards our Artisans Club Program. We offer special exhibitions and participate in community art-based events such as Gallery Walk, American Craft Week, and Art Goes LIVE!
We’re located in the historic, light-filled Paul-Helen Building in Iowa City's Downtown District. Iowa City is a Big-Ten University town known for its Writers’ Workshop and for having the largest teaching hospital in the country.

Customers regularly comment on the beauty and creativity of our displays and the caliber of work we carry.We are known as a must-see location in Iowa City. Stop by and visit us soon!
