In 1971 Gloria Mathews had the first Rockbrook Village art fair with 15 local artists. Known as the “Mayor of Rockbrook Village” Gloria was able to grow this event into one of the best art fairs in Omaha.

 At the time of her death in 1991 the Rockbrook Village art fair was an established annual event, hosting over 150 artists from across the country.

Each year we honor her memory. It was her love of art and her vision to bring in the best artists possible that has made the Rockbrook Village art fair what it is today.
