I’m biased when it comes to Sagebrush, because I count among the members a number of my friends, including famed watercolorist Randy Stout. Sheridan is home to a staggering number of professional and amateur artists given its small size, many of whom showcase their art at the Sagebrush Community Art Center inside the historic train depot downtown.
Sagebrush runs or co-sponsors a number of art events each year, one of which was my first introduction to Sheridan’s art community – the 30-minute art event, hosted at the Sheridan Inn, sees artists, like Randy Stout, craft one-off masterpieces in – you guessed it – 30 minutes or less. The original pieces – paintings, drawings, sculptures and more – are then auctioned off to the public.
Pop by the Art Center to get a glimpse at what’s new in art in the Mountain West, or sign up for one of the many classes offered throughout the year.
Bonus points: When you step out of the Art Center – Sheridan's beautiful old Train Depot – you'll be steps from the rail tracks. There is no better place in Sheridan to spy the old BNSF workhorses in all their glory. You may just find yourself inspired.
