About the Guild

About the Guild

Beached by Casey SzocinskiThe 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.

Venice-Beauty

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.
