Welcome to The Secret Garden, an award-winning gallery offering the work of more than 200 artists from all over North America. We feature the work of many Michigan and local artists. Located in downtown Empire, we are a family-friendly gallery with whimsical, contemporary, affordable art that is accessible to everyone. We have been in business since 1988.


We are open May through December, seven days a week, 10-5.

The Empire store is closed for the winter, opening again May 1 (we hope). Online shopping is still available.

Shopping by appointment is also possible. Email cindy@secretgardenempire.com.

Thanks for a great season! Because everyone wore masks, we were able to stay open! Masks are good for business!

Shop Online (secretgardenshopping.com). Free curbside pickup is available, even in the off-season.

Personal FaceTime shopping appointments are available. Email Cindy (see address below), or call during open hours.
