A must visit in Decorah for exploring local artists. Love the jewelry selection and fine arts. It is extremely well managed with an amazing interior in a great location in old town Decorah. A must visit.

Visited this store today to pick up early Christmas gifts. Always a treat to see what Gail is carrying on inventory. This place is a hidden treasure in Decorah, and yet is conveniently located next to the Hotel Winneshiek.

Agora Arts is a "must visit" for anyone who is unfamiliar with the rich artistic community in the Driftless Area, particularly northeast Iowa. Proprietor Gail Bolson-Magnuson is an artist and savvy collector of some of the best, most outstanding, and innovative artwork in the area....More

With a combination of the art of about (50) artists from painting, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, glass, and so much more you have to check this place out! Upscale. Friendly owner and staff. Unusual, high end pieces. We wanted almost everything! :)

This is a very unique store with jewelry, prints, hand made and painted furniture, Story People prints and more. It is a bit pricey but inexpensive gifts are also available. The merchandise is so unique and very unusual and you will not be disappointed.
