Union Grove is now home to an art studio and creative space. Seven Seas Creative Space, 1029 Main St., is the newest spot in town. From painting pottery to creating floral arrangements and everything in between, this local art space is driven to help unfold the community’s skills. Seven Seas Creative Space works to unleash the artist in every person that walks through their door.

Jeremey and Angie Childers bought the building that Seven Seas Creative Space currently resides in about 3 years ago. Throughout the pandemic, the couple has been working on establishing their new business with the hope to get others into the creative mindset. While the couple isn’t new to the business world, Seven Seas Creative Space is the first of its kind in the Union Grove area.

Angie has had plenty of experience in the business world as a co-owner in her family’s business in Illinois. Additionally, she is a first-generation Italian immigrant from Sicily. Her roots definitely play a role in her cafe, as well as the new business she is creating with her husband.

In addition to being entrepreneurs, they are parents to five children. They say this is their little family shop. Hence the name Seven Seas, or Seven-Cs (7 Childers): a fun play on words that they’ve incorporated into the shop.

Their love for art and travel does not go unnoticed within the Seven Seas Creative Space. Nautical-themed decorations, murals and more appeal to the voyager in everyone. So whether you’re a local or passing through town, a stop into Seven Seas Creative Space feels like a getaway.
