at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts


Established in 2008, Pictura Gallery is a non-profit institution that celebrates photography in its many iterations. We present work that represents the state of the medium today. We are dedicated to showing the art form as it evolves, especially in dialogue with other artistic mediums.

Our mission is to share the best contemporary fine art photography with our community in the Midwest, while contributing to the international dialogue about what is relevant and important in the present day world of photography. We are also devoted to collaborating with artists to help them build strong careers and maintain artistic excellence.

Pictura is housed in the FAR Center for the ContemporaryArts. We are committed to an annual calendar of exhibits –all free to the public – as well as educational programming through lectures and workshops. We work with the guiding belief that photography is a powerful tool, one that sparks questions and conversations and richly engages community.
