Southwest Iowa Art Gallery

Marge Boska opened Fine Arts on Fifth Gallery in 2015, featuring a variety of regional artists, classes and events. She renovated a brick building that once held a blacksmith shop and a laundromat. Marge networks with local artists to attract the best talent and has curated a beautiful collection of over the years.

In 2021, Emily McQueen became the new owner of the gallery. She has worked to grow it as a studio/gallery/teaching space. By creating programs like the Saturday Drop-in Classes for Kids and Second Saturday Art Nights, she hopes to keep art enrichment accessible for kids and adults for years to come. As an artist, she understands that art-making needs to be affordable and accessible in order to become part of the community culture. Just like the city of Malvern - we are "artfully growing".
