Welcome to the Hot Shops Art Center, an art center (approximately 92,000 square feet of space) consisting of art studios, showrooms and various gallery spaces, catering to the art community in and around the Omaha area. Our doors are open 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Weekends 11am to 5pm.
In 1999 a group of established artist studios and interested investors purchased the old Serta Mattress Factory located just north of the Old Market area in Omaha, Nebraska.
The Hot Shop Art Center is the first art center of its kind in the Omaha area. The Art Center includes the three anchor Hot Shops, 50 art studios, four art galleries, and many exhibition spaces.
The studio spaces, which occupy the four story structure of the two brick buildings, are available to artists of all disciplines. A place where artists can work and interact establishes an atmosphere for creative art discourse. This will not only be an energizing influence on development of art, it will ultimately create relationships with other artists fostering a sense of community.
"Hot Shops Market North" (orange building pictured right) occupies the one story warehouse building at the south end of the building complex. The artists of the four anchor studios use forges, welders and kilns to fabricate their art. Locating these "hot" shops in the same building space should be a hot combination.
