Driftless : Midwest Love Magazine Artist Talk & Opening Reception
Gather is excited to host our very first artist talk with the young women behind Driftless, a Bloomington-based, eye-catching, photography-laden, ad-free magazine that will capture you with its intense Love for the Midwest and keep you enthralled with its brilliant photography and excellent writing.
The women behind Driftless will be giving an artist talk beginning at 5:30 at Gather, located at 116 N. Walnut. They will talk about why they started the magazine and how the process of a submission-based, ad-free magazine works. There will be a brief Q & A session following. Opening reception will begin promptly at 6:15.
Driftless is a self-published, biannual magazine about food, art, and adventuring in Midwest America. We introduce our readers to the creative and awe-inspiring wonders this region has to offer by way of stories, illustrations, photos, interviews, and recipes. Our 100-page print magazine provides tangible proof that the Midwest is more than merely flyover territory.
Our interests lie in exploring the world around us, cooking with fresh, wholesome ingredients, and spending time with those who mean the most to us. We love trying new things, eating locally, sharing the wonders of our own backyards, and keeping family traditions alive in new and interesting ways. We are hardworking, kind, resourceful, and down-to-earth. We are a cultural crossroads — we are the Midwest.
Please join us for First Friday on July 7th from 5p-8p for our Artist Talk & Opening Reception. The works will be in display throughout the month of July during regular Gather hours. Driftless magazines are always available for purchase at Gather. Gather hours in our new location at 116 N. Walnut are Tuesday through Saturday 11-6pm, and Sunday 11-4pm.

Gather is a locally owned brick and mortar showcasing the work and art of over 175 local and regional artists and makers. Each First Friday we host an opening reception for our most recent Gallery exhibition and two times per month we host classes and workshops in the back of our shop.
