Artique is a thriving artist co-operative in the growing town of Kamas, not far from Park City, Utah. The gallery features over two-dozen local artists in ceramics, fiber art, jewelry, metal sculpture, painting, photography, wood and more, including a new and used local book store.
Artique was originally opened in 2011 as The Starving Artist Exchange by artists Alisha Niswander, Cassidy DuHadway and Katie Stellpflug, providing an outlet for their work together with a few other local artists. In 2013, Katie became the sole owner, changing the name to Artique. Since then, Artique has become a mainstay on Kamas’ Main Street, featuring 20-30 artists and welcoming visitors and locals alike all year long. Its popular First Friday celebrations place the spotlight on a featured local artist within the co-op each month.
“We’re focusing on helping people get started who are not currently in galleries.
“This is something Kamas needs because there are so many artisans in this area that need an outlet. These are people who wouldn’t approach a gallery so we have a niche here on the East Side of the County”.
