Welcome to Art by U!
Omro’s Creation Station


A Paint Your Own Pottery Shop

Art by U is a “Paint Your Own Pottery Shop”.  Our art studio provides a large assortment of bisqueware (clay that has been molded into an object and fired in a kiln one time) ready for you to glaze. We carry a rainbow of glaze colors that are toxic-free and food safe when fired.  Once you glaze/paint/decorate your bisqueware, it will be fired in a kiln, producing a shiny sealed pottery piece, ready for your enjoyment.  Art by U hosts parties and events in the studio, and Art by U will also bring the party to U!  See Party Packages for details.

111-117 W. Main Street
I.O.O.F Building, 1894-1912

The right-hand portion of this Italianate style-influenced building was built for the members of the Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) fraternal order in 1894 at a cost of $3,500. The two stores provided income for the Order and the second story was its meeting hall. The Order continued to gather in this hall until the 1990s, when much of its memorabilia was given to the Omro Area Historical Museum (18), where it is now on display.The left-hand portion of the building was built in 1912, and it was purposefully designed to match the original portion, which accounts for its, by then, quite old-fashioned design. The addition’s first story was used as a bakery until recently while the other stores have had many tenants. The buildings are located within the Omro Downtown Historic District.

Art Gallery

Art by U is an Art Gallery providing opportunities for local artists to display their fine art pieces with sales available.  We support young artists from local high schools by displaying an “Artist of the Month” for Winneconne and Omro High School.  Art by U is always looking for artists to display their pieces.  Contact Us for more information.
