The Northfield Arts Guild offers multiple opportunities for visual artists to share and sell their work.

Our Gift Shop features the work of over 100 Member Visual Artists from the Northfield Arts Guild.

Our Main Gallery features six juried or invitational, and three education-focused exhibits a year. The Guild also presents Member Visual Artists’ work in six Satellite Exhibition Spaces throughout Northfield. These satellite gallery spaces are available to all Guild Members on a first-come, first-served basis. Our Visual Arts Manager will also invite members to show in these spaces, when members don’t apply.

Additionally, every year on the weekend after Labor Day, over 70 fine artists and craftspeople sell their work in our Riverfront Fine Arts Festival along the beautiful Cannon River. Artist Applications will open in April, 2021 with a June 15, 2021 deadline. Interested in participating? Please contact the Visual Arts Manager at
