 The Next Picture The Next Picture Show (TNPS) is a nonprofit fine arts center for the Rock River Valley where art is created, shown, studied and celebrated. Its goal is to nurture, develop, educate and encourage the arts, and galvanize artists and patrons within the community.

TNPS is located in a vintage 1854 building in Dixon, Ill., which underwent a complete restoration in 2003 and 2004, recreating the 1898 facade and retaining the original wood floors, tin ceilings and internal structures where possible.

The gallery holds juried art exhibitions of all media, special traveling exhibits such as the Illinois Watercolor National Exhibit, and individual exhibits by local artists. It also hosts concerts, recitals, receptions and community events. The lower level is used for art workshops and classes, student art exhibitions and meetings of the art community.

Each year, TNPS partners with other community organizations to support events including student art shows, The Grand Detour Arts Festival, the Phidian Art Show and Nuts About Art.

TNPS is sustained by support from local artists, community members and businesses with annual memberships. The gallery is open Tue.-Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and admission is free.
