Best Art Gallery

Art is an essential part of life and culture in the Valley, and Artisan Forge Studios (1106 Mondovi Road, Eau Claire) is a prime example of the wonderful artistic talent on display in the area. Local artists also have the opportunity to showcase many mediums of work at local galleries such as 200 Main Art & Wine (200 Main St., Eau Claire) and those inside the Pablo Center at the Confluence (128 Graham Ave., Eau Claire). 2020 didn’t keep these art galleries down, as artists switched to online options to showcase their art during the pandemic. –Parker Reed
