Lemon Street Gallery & Artspace, Inc. opened its doors on November 5, 1999 with only thirteen artist-members. Today, the collective includes more than 60 exhibiting artists from the SE Wisconsin NE Illinois region.
During these ten years, Lemon Street’s mission has held steadfast, creatively driving our non-profit visual art center toward quality visual arts education, sponsoring and supporting cultural endeavors, and offering a professional forum for artists to exhibit and sell their work.
Lemon Street’s commitment to “Celebrate Diversity,” is the mainstay of our day to day operation, reflecting the nature, energy and spirit of our founders and our current artist members. The organization has developed the reputation of being a model for start-up artist’s collectives, and other non-profit art organizations, regularly mentoring groups toward their goals of organizing artists.
Strong on collaborations and community service, throughout these 10 years Lemon Street has instituted programs that have had a social and economic impact on our community. This Book profiles the outstanding achievements of Lemon Street Gallery and provides a page for each artist to showcase their work.
