When we opened the doors of Main Street Gallery for the first time in August of 2018, we knew immediately that we were about to embark on something very special happening on the North End of Rockford, Illinois.  The Norwegian Artist Lofts.

The Gallery features several pieces of art on many different print mediums giving us the opportunity to convey each photograph in a very unique, individual way.  We pride ourselves in the fact that every piece of art is one of a kind.  If you purchase an item from Main Street Gallery for your home, office, corporate space or as a gift - no one else will ever own the exact same piece.  

One of the brightest spaces within Main Street Gallery is The Rockford Room.  This room is dedicated solely to displaying photography taken in and around the Rockford area.  Our very own 815 has so much beauty, both past and present, and it is our goal to grow this collection with the help of the community. Our guests both educate and remind us of what Rockford really stands for.  You may find images of structures that are no longer standing, have been completely remodeled, or you might even take away a brand new perspective of something you see every single day but never actually stopped to look at.

Whenever a guest comes up the stairs to the Norwegian Artist Lofts, we are given the opportunity to make an impact on their perspective of the world around them; but, perhaps, the greatest gift of all is the impact that these visitors have on us when they share their stories and memories that are frequently recalled through the visual impact of our photographs.

It is our great pleasure to donate 10% of all art sales to the Natural Land Institute. Their efforts help sustain a beautiful environment for us all to enjoy, as well as habitats for wildlife to thrive.
