Transient Gallery

In 2013, Mat Greiner was looking for an unusual space to use as an art gallery. When he mentioned this to Mike Gustafson of Nestcraft Studio, Mike immediately said, "I have a little office room in the front of my wood shop. We can use that."

Over two years, Transient Gallery staged 17 exhibits featuring 24 artists from Iowa, from across the US, and a few from around the world.

Transient Gallery's last three shows occurred in July of 2015, during Art Week Des Moines.
