Edgewood Orchard Galleries is one of the Midwest's most respected art galleries, known since 1969 for its exhibitions exploring ideas in a wide range of media. Paintings, sculpture, glass, clay, wood and jewelry are all represented. Open daily from mid-May through October, the gallery presents monthly changing feature shows, along with its general exhibits of work by over 100 artists. Although many of these artists are of national reputation, the atmosphere is welcoming and creative, with a genuine love of art and people felt throughout.
The setting is as exceptional as the artwork shown. Housed in a stone fruit barn built in 1918 and located on an 80 acre orchard, the gallery has been lovingly restored and enhanced by owner-architect Minnow Emerson. It includes a bricked courtyard with bistro tables and chairs, a glassed portico, fine leaded-glass windows and the beauty of nature outside every window.
The gallery was started by artist Irene Haberland and her daughter Anne and is now managed by Anne and Minnow's daughter, Nell Emerson, who grew up surrounded by art and the artists who create it.
