Who are the Driftless Area Artists?
First off, we are not artists who wander aimlessly in the name of art!  Our group’s name originates from the region's hills and valleys and its peculiar terrain as the result of its having escaped glaciation in the last glacial period.  Our Driftless Area covers much of southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. A beautiful area in which we live, work, and create art.  
We are painters and potters, wool workers and woodworkers, photo takers, mosaic makers, and jewelry creators.  Whether our tool of choice is brush, pencil, needle, wheel, chisel, or lens, we love sharing our art with each other and with surrounding communities.
We welcome artists of any level into our organization. 

We are “committed to nurturing the artistic growth and development of artists.” 
Membership applications are available below, so download yours today.
