The (106) Gallery and Studio is operated by the Calvin College Department of Art and Art History. Nearly 10,000 square feet of space house faculty studios and a gallery space, looking out on Division Avenue in the Heartside District of downtown Grand Rapids. Throughout the year exhibitions embrace faculty, student and community artwork. During ArtPrize, the gallery strives to curate a cohesive exhibition that presents multiple artists with compelling and complementary artwork. In 2015, the exhibition "Weighing the Landscape" featured twelve ArtPrize artists who drew on environmental relationships for thematic and formal inspiration.

The (106) Gallery is part of a reclaimed building housing over a dozen live/work artist units on the Avenue for the Arts. The gallery space features original hardwood floors, tin ceilings with exposed ductwork, daylight balanced LED track lighting, as well as fixed and moveable walls. The fixed walls are various sizes and the moveable walls are approximately 8' x 8' x 2' in size. All walls are faced with drywall or plaster, and can be hung from or anchored into. Large windows look out onto Division Avenue and receive afternoon sun. For ArtPrize 2016, the (106) Gallery will curate a thematic exhibition of artwork dealing with, and using paper as the primary medium. Only works that fall under this theme will be considered.
