Our Mission

to enhance the local arts community by connecting working artists, arts organizations, and the community in creative gathering spaces.

Our Goals

AWE serves as a centralized hub for artists, the community, and existing arts organizations to connect and collaborate with each other. We offer artist studios, fine art gallery, small performance space, and a makers' workshop.

We Believe

Helping hands create community. Community is built piece by piece, layer by layer, and side by side on the common canvas that is Eagan.

Community Abstract Painting

Community Abstract Painting

with Jeff Ambroz

In AWE's first call for art, Jeff Ambroz captured our imagination with his proposal for a collaborative community application of his own creative process. We offered this workshop for the first time in September of 2016 with our venue partner, Midwest Special Services in Eagan, MN.

Community Tower

Community Tower

with Jerri Neddermeyer

Inspired by Jeff Ambroz's application for collaborative abstract art, we created collaborative workshops in a variety of media. Our goals are to expose artists to unfamiliar media, to create a gateway artistic experience for novice community members, and to challenge featured artists to think about their own creative process within a collaborative context.
