Welcome to the Creamery Arts Center!
Gallery is temporarily closed for re-organization – After school classes to resume September 9, 2015.
After a decade of serving the art community in Delta County, the Creamery Arts Center will be closing our doors this August. The vision of a community space for education and the arts began in 2006 when a formerly vacant and run down building was extensively remodeled into a world-class art gallery and education center by Linda Tullis. The Creamery, which has since become a centerpiece of downtown Hotchkiss, as well as an attraction to visitors from outside the area, has strengthened art appreciation, provided low cost art classes to the area youth, offered free art programs to Delta County senior citizens, and has provided gallery space for over 50 local artists and authors to sell their work. Unfortunately, the cost of managing and operating the gallery far exceeds the revenues available from classes and sales of art. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donations and grants. Our revenue from these sources is down 50% from this time last year, leaving us no other option but to close the gallery. The Board of Directors is deeply saddened by this decision and is hopeful that members of the community will come forward with a plan to restructure and reopen the gallery in the near future. Our after-school clay and art classes will be starting on September 9, 2015 Clay classes – Wednesday – 3:30 until 5:15 Art classes – Wednesday and Thursday – 3:30 until 5:15 Classes follow the Delta School schedule, there are no classes during school breaks.
