The Black Couch

The Black Couch is a working studio and art gallery in Hermosa. We are a collective of artists and musicians whose mission is to encourage positive community involvement through art and music.

We aim to establish ourselves as a place for collaboration, artistic growth and as a space where people of all ages and skill levels can get in touch with their inner creative potential.
