Bend Gallery is a small, artist run contemporary art gallery which occupies the corner of Weston Street and Division Avenue in the heart of the Avenue for the Arts. Serving as a multi-use gallery, art studio, and living space, the gallery was founded by local artists Madison Nicole May and Regina Masterson in the Spring of 2017. 



  • to introduce an affordable and customizable gallery fee model to Grand Rapids artists
  • to host workshops and events designed for professional and artistic development
  • to curate a range of dynamic exhibitions which bring in works of art that address personal, social, and political issues
Bend Gallery is run by artists Madison Nicole May and Regina Masterson with the help of volunteers. There are no paid staff and no profits made. The gallery space relies solely on the affordable price model for exhibitions when applicable, and donations!
We're always in need of supplies to keep the gallery running. Check out our Amazon Wish List  or donate to our PayPal to help keep our exhibitions affordable!
