Liz Lidgett Gallery and Design will be open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday by appointment.
Lidgett believes in the power of art for everyone and has spent her career helping individuals and businesses own and invest in art. The gallery furthers her work by creating a welcoming atmosphere for anyone interested in living with art. The gallery will rotate exhibitions every two months. Each unique show will emphasize education that further connects the viewer to the artist and their work. Additionally, a percentage of profits from each show will be donated to local and national arts organizations.
“The Des Moines arts community is such a rich and emerging scene,” said Liz Lidgett, founder and CEO. “I look forward to expanding our services and championing artists both locally and nationally in the new gallery space.”
Her previous company, Adore Your Walls, rebranded to Liz Lidgett Gallery and Design in January 2019. The gallery space is part of a number of new businesses at 111 E. Grand — Iowa’s first building to be completely constructed of eco-friendly mass timber — including a restaurant and a coffee shop.
