SAGE Community Arts is becoming a household name in the Sheridan area and beyond. The organization is a non-profit led by executive director, Jill Benson and guided by the board of directors. There are two galleries at SAGE consisting of one member gallery that rotates in new art every 3-4 months and one exhibition gallery that changes out every six weeks to feature a new artist or collection.
If you haven’t been into the beautiful, bright, and charming galleries to peruse what SAGE Community Arts has to offer the community, you are missing out on a wonderful artistic experience right here in downtown Sheridan. Not only is Rachel Mathews, the Gallery Manager at SAGE a true delight, you are missing the opportunity to take advantage of what SAGE has to offer if you don’t stop in.
In addition to hosting two galleries, Rachel wants people to know that 85% of the artists represented at the gallery are local to the Sheridan area. SAGE Community Arts also offers memberships to artists, including a Student Membership option for junior artists and college students for just $25/year. “If you’re looking for art, come here and support local artists,” Rachel said of SAGE. “We have all kinds of art from fine art to hang, earrings to wear, postcards to send, and mixed media and 3D”, she continued. If you stop into the galleries, make sure you chat with Rachel or Jill! They have loads of knowledge about local artists and how SAGE helps represent the creatives in the area.
