art after darkArt After Dark - Art After Dark is the Guild's signature event, held annually in November. It's an evening of art and entertainment when the Artists' Guild invites the community to experience an evening of visual art including watercolors, oils, acrylics, photography, pottery, fiber arts, jewelry, and mixed media exhibited by Guild artists.

Entertainment for previous AADs has included music by Hakim Rahsul, Bill Karp, Norton Wade, the Columbia County Choral Society, the Columbia County Ballet and more.  It's an event you won't want to miss, especially the  auction of art done by our very talented local celebrities.

ART-AT-THE-BARNArt in the Barn - Art in the Barn was the Guild's first show and was held at the Riverwood Plantation Clubhouse in 2005 and 2006.  Featuring wine tastings, live auctions of art and exhibits of members' artwork in various media, we had lots of fun and started an annual Guild tradition, now known as Art After Dark. For a look at the Guild's original exhibit, see pics.

Art in the Park is a county-sponsored event that takes place in May.
