Sagebrush Community Art Center moving to the Montgomery on Main

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — The Sagebrush Community Art Center, currently located in the historic railroad depot on Fifth and Broadway streets, is moving to the Montgomery on Main. SAGE has occupied leased or donated space in Sheridan for the past 75 years, but because of a donation from Sy Thickman and Susan Scott Heyneman, the Sheridan Artists' Guild will find its "forever home" this November. "We are excited to be downtown, close to the WYO Theater, close to the DSA—we will be closer to the Sheridan artists' community, where the action is," Edre Maier, volunteer, grant writer and past president of SAGE said.

The organization has to raise about $300,000 to finish its space in the Montgomery, and will be seeking donations and grants from local community foundations. The Montgomery is currently under renovation, but was once the home of the Sheridan Post Office, followed by a stationery and drug store. In 1910, the location became home to Sheridan National Bank. The building on site today—which downtown Sheridan has recently been watching undergo a dramatic transformation—was built in 1936. SAGE will occupy over 5,000 square-feet of workshop and gallery space. The main floor space will house the members' and main gallery, and the basement will house classes and workshops accessible by elevator. [image: unnamed-1.jpg][image: unnamed-2.jpg] #dally #news
