Dimensions Gallery is dedicated to showing work from the Greater Bloomington community. We are constantly improving the gallery to change the way we display work to make it easier, safer and cleaner to rotate through the various shows that are planned for this year! This means more shows for our fans and safer and more diverse hanging systems for the artists.
Artisan Alleys’ Dimensions Gallery (our primary gallery) is located at the center of our 222 W. 2nd Street location and is approximately 600 sq. ft. (15′ x 40′) with 10 ft. tall walls and can accommodate roughly 50-70 people.
Dimensions’ auxillary Gallery at Upland Brewing Co., located at 350 W 11th St, is a special benefit for our members, and is comprised of much of the wall space at their restaurant brewpub.
Our Bloomington location is available to rent for a variety of private events using our Event and Venue Rental Application, ranging from musical shows, business meetings, lectures, workshops and private engagements or feel free to apply using our Dimensions Gallery Proposal Form, if you have a solo or group show you would like to set up.
Dimensions Gallery at Artisan Alley accepts Cash and Credit Cards (via PayPal with 3% tax) for art purchases.
