The Artists' Guild of Columbia County is a fast-growing group of professional and amateur artists and patrons of the visual arts. Our artist members work in a variety of media including acrylic, ceramics, charcoal, collage, fiber arts, graphics, jewelry, metal art, oil, pastel, pen & ink, photography, pottery and watercolor. The Guild provides opportunities for artists to exchange creative ideas and business information and offers projects of interest to artists and those interested in the arts.
The Guild was established in 2004, and was initially launched by Columbia County Arts. In its first two years, the Guild hosted Art in the Barn and Art After Dark, scheduled exhibitions at various public venues and provided educational opportunities for our members. The Guild has also established a scholarship fund and has awarded over $5,000 in scholarship funding to local students majoring in art.
The Guild meets monthly, alternating between second Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Here's our current brochure.
Our next Artscape will be at Evans Towne Market, 4460 Washington Rd, Saturday, May 11, from 2 - 7 pm. Mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate with your colleagues! Art will be displayed both inside and outside on the sidewalk, and will also be available for purchase. You may also enjoy a wine tasting ($5 per person) at Evans Towne Market.
ArtScapes will continue each second Saturday of the month at Evans Towne Market. Check back here to see future locations, or contact the Guild to schedule an Artscape at your event!
Do you have art supplies to sell, perhaps something you bought and decided not to use? If you're a Guild member, you can sell them to other members. We'll post your sale here and people can pick up their purchase at the next Guild meeting.
The Guild meets monthly at the Brandon Wilde clubhouse, alternating Tuesdays and Saturdays.
