WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO
Artisans at the Dahmen Barn is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that cultivates creativity on the Palouse by providing studio space for artists to work in and sell their creations, a place for local artists and fine craftspeople to sell their work on consignment, a venue for local performing and exhibiting artists, and creative experiences for children and adults through classes and workshops.

Attractions include a gift shop featuring art, fine crafts and products from the Palouse, artisans at work in their studio spaces who will share their creative process with visitors and from whom purchases may be made directly, a monthly art exhibit, and regularly scheduled classes and performance events.

Four big events are held each year: An art demonstration day in April, a summer tea, a fall festival in September and a Holiday Gala with gifts galore in December. There are also numerous visual and performing arts events each month - check the calendar page for details.



Located in southeastern Washington State

.
Artisans at the Dahmen Barn is located in the rich dryland farming area called the Palouse, in Uniontown WA. Situated 16 miles south of both Pullman WA and Moscow ID, and 16 miles north of Lewiston ID, and Clarkston, WA, the art center is truly the hub of the Palouse.

The artisan center is adjacent to Highway 195, where the big white barn can be seen surrounded by its famous landmark fence of 1000 iron wheels. Formerly a dilapidated dairy barn which was donated to the community by Steve and Junette Dahmen, the structure has undergone a transformation into a state-of-the-art creativity center.

What began in 2004 as an experiment turning a dilapidated dairy barn into a creativity center has exceeded our expectations. After two years of development and successful operation since 2006, we are bursting at the seams and need your help to grow our facility and programs. Click here to Join Us!




We are ready!

.
The loafing shed has been completely removed and the water and sewer lines extended. We are ready for the addition!

Darn it, the architect's estimates have come out higher than were expected, so we are busy raising more funds. If you can help, go to the Sustaining the Barn page and click on Join Us where you will find the donation form.

Because we are a 501c3 non-profit organization, your donations are tax deductible.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AS WE GROW THE BARN.
