The Next Picture Show (TNPS) is a non-profit fine arts center in the Rock River Valley. Our goal is to nurture, develop, educate, foster the arts, and galvanize artists and patrons within the community.

Located in the heart of downtown Dixon, Illinois, we invite you to explore this website and to come back often to see current shows, exhibiting artists, workshops, classes, and special events.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment.
