Where do all these artists live?
Most of the artists who have pieces in the gallery live and work within a 50 mile radius of Sturgis.

Is the art here original by the artist?
Most of the work on display is original work by the artist. Sometimes prints of original 2D work are made, but these are certified as being from original works by that artist. We also have "Collector's Corner" items for resale.

I love this artist's work--where can I learn how to do it? Does he have any workshops?  
Many of the artists do teach workshops or give private lessons. Contact that artist you have questions about. Go to the page listing all the members for contact information.

I understand the gallery is entiredly self supporting and partly dependent on contributions--how can I help?
The gallery is supported by volunteers, contributions from sponsors, fund raising events and sales of art works. You can help  by a monetary contribution,  donation of office supplies, attending fund raisers and your purchase of art work.  If you are looking for a gift,  for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions, check out the gallery for unique one of a kind gifts.  We thank you for helping support our efforts to unlock the door to the arts in Sturgis.

Do you have gift certificates?
Yes! Take the worry out of selecting the "right" gift with the purchase of a gift certificate.

How do I become an artist member?
Begin by picking up an application at the Gallery or by calling to request one be sent to you--269-659-9977
