Promoting Iowa Artists

The Ankeny Art Center is dedicated to promoting and supporting Iowa artists. By engaging emerging artists in the area we can change our art exhibitions about every 8 weeks. This gives you an opportunity to always find something new and inspiring when visiting the Ankeny Art Center. Visitors are invited to browse the exhibits at their leisure and attend an opening reception for an artist.

Opening receptions at an art gallery offer a great excuse to indulge in a little free wine and cheese, but you also have the opportunity to chat with the artist and experience an evening of culture and meet new people. Best of all, our artist receptions and exhibits are aways free and open to the public! So, stop in and check out our current exhibit!
