Art Gallery

Heider Center - Art GalleryThe Marie W. Heider Center for the Arts in West Salem, Wisconsin includes a large gallery space which is the focal point and entrance area of the theatre. The gallery features local and regional artists from September through May.

Many area and local artists have shown their work in the gallery.
