The Rainbow Springs Artist Cooperative was the vision of Walter Mclellan and Chuck Dillion who have fearlessly pursued it and help set the stage for it by supporting the annual Rainbow Springs Art Festival. June Johnson, a former gallery owner will Chair the Co-op committee. June and her husband Tom have been instrumental in creating the vision for the gallery. Processes used successfully by other art co-ops will be leveraged to develop strategies for member requirements; hours of operation, staffing, etc. “We are delighted to have the confidence of Dunnellon City Council to move forward with this initiative, and welcome input from anyone with prior experience in an art co-op” said Susan Jones, 2016 Rainbow Springs Fine Art Association President.
The Dunnellon Community has an abundance of artists including musicians, painters, jewelers, potters and more.
Chatting at the Co-op or teaching their classes, our artists are well versed!
