Crete Creative Gallery and School @ Arbor House is a not-for-profit space designed and dedicated to showcasing artists from both near and far.


We believe that culture and the arts should be available to everyone. Talent is not reserved for big cities and neither is a love, an interest, or a passion for the arts...

What's New in 2022?

"Bioferric: Tethered Arch" is our new sculpture piece installed in front of Arbor House.

It was created by regional artist, Michael Perrott. He was born and raised in the South Chicago Suburbs and was a public school art teacher and administrator for 35 years before recently retiring. Michael is now devoting his energies to the studio and working with other Chicago area artists.

As a sculptor, Michael primarily works with welded steel and repurposed material.
