HAIR + NAILS is a contemporary art gallery owned and operated by artist/musician RYAN FONTAINE & dancer/choreographer/artist KRISTIN VAN LOON. We are dedicated to exhibiting compelling and thought provoking visual art and occasional dance performance. Our hope is that H + N will play the evolving role of providing a space where new work, new ideas and new collaborations are sparked and are able to flourish.

We acknowledge that HAIRandNAILS is located on land stolen from the Dakota and Ojibwe tribes that once freely lived here. This land was stolen through duplicity and horrific violence. It is important to consider that this genocide happened in the not so distant past and that the effects have a direct bearing on the present day circumstances of Native American, First Nations, and Indigenous peoples throughout North America and the world.
