The Gallery features more than 50 artists working in ceramics, fiber, jewelry, leather, photography, glass, sculpture, wood, painting and mixed media.
Gallery customers have come to appreciate the beauty of handmade, one-of-a-kind fine crafts and enjoy supporting local artists.
The Gallery periodically participates in Milwaukee’s popular Gallery Night and Day events (historicthirdward.org), when it showcases a different artist on each of these occasions (usually spring and fall dates only).
In addition, the Gallery is partially supported by the Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council, a statewide fine crafts organization founded in 1916.
We are always looking to represent new artists in the Morning Glory Gallery.
If you are an artist interested in showing/selling your work, please send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include 4-6 photos of your work, suggested retail prices and an artist statement, and we will respond.
The Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council usually hosts its annual Morning Glory Art Fair on the outdoor grounds of the Marcus Performing Arts Center each August. However, in 2020, the Fair has been cancelled. Shoppers can still purchase fine craft work from the same talented artists year-round inside the Gallery.
