Studio Works Goals
Gallery C - the Carolyn M Gallery - is a professional, contemporary, fine art gallery with year-round exhibitions. The gallery is curated and managed through the collaboration of Jackie Banigan (director), Janice Roerig-Blong (founder) and the Studio Works Board of Directors. Gallery C hosts exhibitions that create dialogue, engage the community and enrich the experience of the arts. The gallery showcases emerging and established artists of local, national and international origin.
The gallery hosts art events throughout the year, making it a vital part of the cultural corridor and a destination for the arts in the Historic Millwork District. Gallery C impacts and enriches the community’s involvement with the arts through its collaboration with such organizations as the Dubuque Museum of Art, Voices Productions, Carnegie-Stout Public Library, Inspire Cafe and other local organizations and businesses.
