Sheridan Artists’ Guild to Move to New Location In Mid-January

Posted in

The Sheridan Artists' Guild has recently raised money to acquire their new space at the former Montgomery Ward building on Main Street in Sheridan. The building is currently under construction and is expected to be completed during mid-January.

After the Guild moves from their old train depot location on East 5th Street to their new space, they will initiate phase three of their project: supporting the Guild more than ever over the next few years. They plan to build a strong foundation and improve the quality of their exhibits and the artists shown by bringing their members’ galleries, fine arts galleries, and kids’ camps to the next level.

Shows are already scheduled to be held at the Guild throughout 2017. The first show of next year will be their seventh annual national juried show from February 8 to March 8, 2017. This show will feature regional artists’ works as well as various submissions from selected artists across the country. From March 15 to April 14, 2017 the Guild will showcase “Young Modern Master,” a show displaying many pieces from Sheridan’s young artists.

On July 22-24 of next year, 2011 wood carver of the year, Vic Hood will instruct a class at the Sheridan Artists’ Guild. The Guild hopes that classes like these will draw people from all over and inspire them to become involved in Sheridan’s culture.

As far as expanding their kids’ camps, the Guild will partner with K-Life and the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program to improve their children's’ education area.They also plan to partner with the Sheridan Public Arts Council and the WYO Theater and host a Dining For A Cause fundraiser dinner at Frackelton’s on Main Street in the near future.
