Gallery 522 has the distinction as the oldest continuous public exhibit space for local and regional artists in central and western North Dakota . It is comprised of professional artists who actively produce and exhibit art and who are committed to meeting community artistic needs
The exhibition and study of art is an educational extension of Gallery 522. With and through the artists, the gallery shares educational opportunities in the visual arts and showcases visual art pieces in many mediums, ensuring a marketplace for the arts.
Community involvement begins with our artists, who live and work not only in the Bismarck-Mandan area but also in surrounding cities and farms. They therefore bring a broad range of ideas and backgrounds to the gallery. The world of art itself is about community involvement including community diversity on all levels. Through the years we have exhibited art representing broad ranges of heritage and cultures. The diversity of ages of our artists, art styles and mediums used to create art (oil, watercolor, clay, etc.) illustrate the timelessness of art.
The gallery is free and welcoming to everyone.
