Artists’ Guild Moving to Casper’s Old Yellowstone District

The Casper Artists’ Guild is aiming to move into its new home by spring of next year.

Executive director Holly Turner says the guild is planning to renovate just over half of the 29,000 sq. ft. Pacific Fruit warehouse at 321 W. Midwest Ave. in Casper’s Old Yellowstone urban renewal district.

“We’re leasing with an option to buy right now for a year, so that year will give us time for us to raise the rest of the money that we need for renovations, and then move into it and sell our current location,” Turner said.

Turner says the roughly 16,000 sq. ft. space will allow the guild to bolster many of its current programs and functions.

“We’ll have a large space for exhibitions, and we’ll have a central area with an art library, then we’ll have a whole area for studio space,” Turner said. “When you come in, you’ll be able to buy Wyoming art, you’ll be able to see artists showing their work, and you’ll be able to see artists making their work.”

Turner says the new facility will be at least twice as large as the organization’s current facility.

Casper City Council unanimously approved the agreement Tuesday night.

According to the terms of the agreement, the group will have to raise $200,000 in 12 months to purchase their portion of the building from the city.

Turner says firm renovation and move-in timetables have not yet been set.
