The Ghost Town Arts Collective is an arts cooperative based in the Texoma region that has been supporting and nurturing the arts since 2007.
We are dedicated to creating an open space for the arts community to experiment, share, and connect, and for the community at large to experience the creative process through participation, appreciation, and education.
For this purpose, we have established a makerspace for hosting artistic workshops and classes as well as hosting gallery exhibitions showcasing visual and performance art, music, dance, spoken word, poetry, creative writing, bookmaking, and film created by members of our community.
Co-Executive Directors Elizabeth Elsberg and Jean Roelke manage the day-to-day operations of the organization. The Ghost Town Arts Collective engages the community using multiple avenues: exhibitions, participation in community events and festivals, and classes/workshops. The organization will host at least two major exhibitions per year showcasing the artwork of its members. The Ghost Town Arts Collective will use Ideation Station as the primary location for gallery shows along with other local and regional venues in the city of Sherman, TX and more.
The Ghost Town Arts Collective is a 501(c )3 nonprofit and must follow the IRS rules of operating a nonprofit.
