Wow – It’s a New Year and We’re Off and Running! “Kansas Through The Eyes Of An Artist”, Cajun Third Thursday, Amazing Classes, and Kansas Day Celebration!
Join us in January for new exhibits, amazing classes, and a fun Third Thursday with Cajun red beans and rice, live blues and jazz, and “Dirty Laundry,” an exhibit of portfolio prints from Big Nasty Press in the mezzanine.
Our first juried exhibit, “Kansas Through The Eyes Of An Artist” (January 13-March 2), features 34 artists who offer their visions of Kansas through their selected mediums of oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, photography, mixed media, dyed silk, and relief prints. Prizes are awarded to the first, second, third, and honorable mention entries. Thanks to our prize sponsors: Graber’s Plumbing & Heating; Knudsen, Monroe, & Co.; Steve Shields; Susan Koehn; and Rebecca Ryan.

Thank You... to the 43 founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery. Their foresight in 1983 to rent space in a former carriage factory and later to become owners of the property as a nonprofit arts organization led to a renewal of appreciation for creative arts in the community. The gallery today provides opportunities for all ages to gather, learn, experience, perform, share, and celebrate the arts. We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the beauty of the art and the hospitality of this historic space.
Three of the founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery were together at a special event in the gallery: Martha Knudsen, Dr. Frances Allen, and Naomi Wenger
