The Art Cottage
What happens when ideas take shape and stars align? Dreams come true! Need proof? Step inside The Art Cottage—an art retreat in the heart of Gardner Village. It’s a two-story shop with a special story to tell.
We wanted a place where we could share our passion for art as well as support other local Utah artists. A place the community could gather to both purchase original designs and also tap into their own unique talents as they learn about and celebrate creativity. As we planned and imagined, we knew one thing to be true—it had to the perfect location. “Somewhere like Gardner Village,” was actually stated as we brainstormed possibilities. As luck would have it, that perfect location had just become available—a two-story house with room for both a retail space and a classroom. Suddenly, our dream found its home and became a beautiful reality!
Save the cookie cutters for the kitchen. You’ll find original works of art at The Art Cottage. And they’re made right here in Utah. We also carry art you can wear—gorgeous handmade jewelry. Once you and your walls are dressed for success, focus your attention on our unique assortment of home decor pieces. We offer items that will easily complement any space and enhance your design style. Looking to create your own masterpiece? We carry an assortment of art supplies and even offer custom framing. Our framing prices are some of the best in the state and our frame styles are varied and unique. Nothing but the best for your treasured pieces!
Take a break from it all and enjoy a creative escape. Enjoy the view of Gardner Village from our second story windows, where natural light pours in and ignites the imagination. Highly experienced instructors teach classes on a variety of topics to students of all ages (6 and up). And the holidays and special events are made all the more memorable with our engaging activities (seasonal make-and-take projects, date nights, and more!).

We’re called The Art Cottage for a reason—we want gallery art to feel accessible and you to feel at home in our inviting space. Pull up a chair and try your hand at painting. We always have supplies out and ready. In fact, Bonnie Merrill, our resident artist, can often be found creating right inside our front door.
