Phantom Gallery Parties turn rough spaces into temporary art galleries for one night only. This event features great art, great food, and great entertainment in an unexpected location somewhere in Portage County that is revealed the day before. 


Our third installment - THAW - will take place February 18 at a location to be revealed. It will be brought to life by select visual artists: Karolee Bulak, Thomas Moberg, Jennifer Kate Battaglia, Dani Schafer, Heidi Oberstadt, and Ashley Pfannenstiel. This smaller venue will sell out, so get your tickets fast! Tickets are $35 and available here.

Phantom Gallery Party: Earth & Industry
Second Installment

CREATE Portage County hosted its second Phantom Gallery Party in partnership with the Midwest Renewable Energy Association. As the official after party to the Energy Fair, the event took place Friday, June 17 from 8pm-12am in Amherst Junction.

Both the theme – Earth & Industry – and the location were selected to enhance this partnership, which sought to incorporate art into the rich tradition that is the Energy Fair. The second Phantom Gallery was brought to life by the progressive bluegrass band Armchair Boogie, and local visual artists Boleslaw and August Kochanowski, Angie Hall, Logan Erickson, Joy Ratchkramer, Ahna Butt, and Robert Rosen.
