About Us

Established in 2006, The Gallery on 5th has been the place to go for Michigan-made art in the Keweenaw for more than a decade. More than 115 artists are featured in our beautiful, historical space. Our building is around 130 years old and is an integral part of the 100 block of 5th Street in Historic Calumet.

In May of 2022, Morten and Kristi Haugland of Destination Calumet purchased the business and the building as part of their plans to revive Calumet and make it a real destination for aesthetes and artisans alike.

The Gallery on 5th will continue to support local artists, community events, and travelers for years to come!
