A Celebration of the Fine Arts! Located in the heart of downtown Sulphur, the ARTesian Gallery and Studios is a space for creating, appreciating and sharing fine art. Renovated to complement the grand Artesian Hotel • Casino • Spa, located just across the street, this 7,400 square- foot facility features an art gallery, classroom space, reception and retail space.
Designed to assist and promote Chickasaw and other Native American artists, the facility also houses a pottery studio and up to five separate studio spaces, available for artists to rent. The gallery area provides an excellent venue for artists to display and market their work as well as a reception area for “meet the artists” events and gallery art shows. The retail shop carries supplies for creating all types of art, from high-quality paint brushes and watercolors to crayons and coloring books. Traditional and contemporary jewelry, books, music and more created by Chickasaw and Native artists are also available in the retail shop.
The ARTesian Gallery and Studios offers art classes for all levels, from beginning artists to professional artists. Some of the art classes include “make and take” classes and specifically designed classes for visitors to the area. Also, weaving workshops by Chickasaw textile artist Margaret Roach Wheeler will soon be available. The ARTesian is conveniently located near other attractions in the area such as the Chickasaw Cultural Center, Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Chickasaw Visitor Center and newly designed Chokma'si Sculpture Park. Come experience a celebration of the fine arts at the ARTesian Gallery and Studio on your next adventure in Chickasaw Country!
