The Next Picture Show (TNPS) is a non-profit fine arts center in the Rock River Valley. Our goal is to nurture, develop, educate, foster the arts, and galvanize artists and patrons within the community.

Located in the heart of downtown Dixon, Illinois, we invite you to explore this website and to come back often to see current shows, exhibiting artists, workshops, classes, and special events.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment.

Looking for something specific? Check our Calendar of Events page.

The visual narrative of the artist's work will reveal their mind,
spirit and emotion in the artwork. The work will express
the subject through the artist's emotions, whether it is
bold energy, subtle expression, mystery deepened or
revealed, inner beauty, or a unique vision.

This show runs from Septemeber 1 through October10, 2015.
Artists explore what makes ourt area so special, its farms,
barns, and rural landscape-its heritage. Judged by Keith Zickuhr
