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.



We host shows that feature a combination of live music, live painting, or performance art. All events are BYOB and donation entry unless otherwise noted. 

Call us if you're interested in booking the space for an event or fundraiser at 847.321.5681.
