Var Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in the Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with two locations on 2nd and 5th Street.

The galleries are known for ambitious exhibitions, engaging events, and a social atmosphere to enjoy artworks and cocktails with friends. Var Studios houses 70 Milwaukee-based artists at both locations. In addition to our regular programming, Var Gallery’s 5th Street location promotes affordable artworks through our Small Works Gallery, hosts rotating exhibitions through our Between Two Galleries and houses Hawthorn Contemporary. The gallery was founded by Josh Hintz in 2014, and today thrives as a center point for Milwaukee’s visual arts community. For more information or to see available artworks, visit
