With recent remodeling and changes in occupancy, studios are available on the ground and second floor at Sugar Creek Art Center. Our elevator, installed in 2016, makes easy access to the second floor studios and gallery.
Currently, we have a variety of resident and non-resident artists availing themselves of the facility in which our Gift Shop is being moved and improved and a Gallery on 1 will be used to sell curated arts and crafts on a “buy-and-take” basis. Our Gallery on 2 and the Events Room will continue as venues for one-man and group exhibitions as well as shows and events. The Sugar Creek Art Center has been in operation since 2005 and we work only on a volunteer basis as a 501 c (3), not-for-profit organization.
Different studios are available and categorized small to large depending on the size range into which they fall. At time of “updating” there were 7 small and 4 medium studios. Rentals start at $75.00 per month for a small studio, making them very affordable and competitive. A deposit equivalent to one month’s rent is required on signing a contract at start of your rental; rent is due at the beginning of each month.
Sugar Creek Art Center is located 1 block south of SR 47 on South Pearl Street in Thorntown, Indiana, making it easily accessible for many surrounding urban as well as rural communities. Parking is plentiful and free. A short drive saves you a lot of money when you compare rental rates for different studio venues, particularly in urban areas.
We look forward to meeting you and touring you through Sugar Creek Art Center.
