Fisch Haus Studios is a multi-disciplinary art facility, located in Wichita’s Commerce St. Art District, currently accommodating five full-time local artists as well as a steady stream of artists, actors and musicians, both regional and international.   The artist cooperative was founded in 1990, and since 1993, has operated out of a three story warehouse that contains studio and gallery space, small businesses, a full wood and metal shop and a graphic design studio.  The Fisch Haus produces several large-scale shows annually, and hosts numerous community art events, ranging from visiting artist exhibitions and performances, to lectures, classes, benefits, readings, and music festivals throughout the rest of the year; most all of which are offered free of charge and are open to all ages. 

In 2004, Fisch Haus Studios formed a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation under Fisch Bowl, Inc., in order to bring Wichita a wider variety of cultural events.  To submit an exhibition proposal, go to the Fisch Bowl page and scroll to the bottom to find the guidelines. 

Current Fisch Haus artists are co-founders Patrick Duegaw, Eric Schmidt and Kent Williams;  along with Elizabeth Stevenson and Jamie Tabor.

More information about the collective, as well as photographs and videos of our events, are available on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo.  An essay, written by Dr. Emily Stamey, for the group’s 2011 exhibition at the Ulrich Museum of Art, is available here.
