Suzie Cappa Art Center & Gallery

Suzie Cappa Art Center & Gallery

We believe in, and constantly encourage, the idea of artistic freedom and independence.

Suzie Cappa Arts Center & Gallery is part of the Black Hills Works family, a community of artists of all abilities who create inspiring art. The space was established in 2001 in memory of Suzie Cappa who received services from Black Hills Works. She was a talented and creative person who independently selected her own brushes, her own colors, and her own subjects of interest. Suzie’s mother, Juanita, recognized her talent and arranged instruction with local artist Ida Jansen. Under Ida’s direction, Suzie studied a variety of art forms from 1985 until her passing in 1997.

Suzie Cappa Arts Center & Gallery continues her legacy, providing a supportive, inspiring environment where artists create, exhibit, and sell their work to the community. There is nothing like it in the region. Artists receive proceeds from the sales of their work, and oftentimes also participate in music, theater, and dance. All artistic materials are provided, and mentoring is regularly offered by professional artists, volunteers, and Black Hills Works employees.

Each year, we welcome thousands of guests from all over the country—and world—to our space. Work by Suzie Cappa artists is also exhibited across the country.
