The Eastside Artists (ESA) began in 1992 and originally consisted of artists from the east side of Iowa City and now includes artists from throughout Iowa City and surrounding areas. The Eastside Artists is a group of local artists who work cooperatively on the Show and Sale. Expenses, fees, and labor are shared equitably.

The Eastside Artists consists of a core group of sixteen permanent members, and four to six juried guest artists each year. Returning guest artists may be invited to membership when an artist retires from the group.  

We currently have one show/sale each year, typically the second weekend in December in the Masonic building in downtown Iowa City.
