Artists must carve out space for themselves, both geographically and mentally, where they can create. I carved out my little space in a historic cottage-style home built in 1926. It is a space where I can create artwork and share other people’s creativity. Here in Tulsa, OK., there is a growing art community. The Cottage is proud to be a small part of that culture. By hosting art contests and art exhibitions, we are showcasing artists at all levels and in all media, for example painters, sculptors, sketchers, 3D, digital artists, poets, musicians, photographers, stained glass artists, performance artists, etc. By offering art classes, we are finding connections with many more artists and art lovers from elementary school age to adults.
