business district. Organized in 2000, we became the Open Door

with donations, grants and volunteer labor. This
provides the retail outlet for the local artist members. Our
members’ work includes framed work in all mediums, plus
pottery, metal, glass, wood work and other high
The Open Door Art Center is the non profit branch that encourages
individuals to engage in artistic pursuits through community outreach
and educational programs. These include quarterly art walks,
classes, student and open community shows, one-person shows, and bus
trips to area museums and art festivals.
Both the Gallery and Art Center are active in the Sturgis Chamber of
Commerce, the Downtown Sturgis Association, and the Sturgis Public
Schools organizations. There is no paid staff, just a group of hard
working and dedicated volunteers. We are supported through donations,
grants, retail sales, and fundraising.
