Bottle Rocket Gallery Residency Program
Bottle Rocket Gallery Residency Program

A non-profit gallery, Bottle Rocket shows artists whose work can be described as controversial, confrontational, or in some way challenging for the viewer. Our mission is simple: to create access to interesting art and to throw a great party.

Bottle Rocket is a pop up gallery located in Northwest Arkansas. Our original location was at 1495 Finger Rd., Fayetteville, AR in a building designed and built by Ozark craftsman Robert Runyan on the grounds of Gayeta Lodge, a home built and occupied by Arkansas writer Charles Joseph Finger in the early part of the 20th century.

During his lifetime, Finger put great effort into bringing interesting intellectuals and artists from outside the area to stay at Gayeta and meet and talk with Fayettevillians. The tradition continues via Bottle Rocket Gallery.
