Down on the Farm: Pop Up Iron Fine Art Showcase

ArtHaus is excited to present Down on the Farm Iron Pour’s first juried iron exhibition for three days in our Doyle G Heyveld Gallery. The opening of the show will be Thursday, June 30 from 6 to 8 pm. Many of the artists will be present to talk about their work. The opening is free to the public.

Down on the Farm Iron Pour is an annual event that celebrates the art and science of iron casting by inviting participants to make sand molds and scratch tiles, and break and pour iron in Northeast Iowa.  The pour has been happening at the Ludeking farm for 18 years.  ArtHaus’ exhibition will display works made during the eighteen previous years this event has taken place. Tatiana Blanch’s sculpted toad (pictured) will be on display along with other artists’ iron works. The Down on the Farm Iron Pour show will be on view  until July 2nd during ArtHaus hours (1-7 pm weekdays and 10-5 Saturdays)

This event is made possible by a partnership with Down on the Farm Iron Pour.
