ARTISTS GUILD OF SPARTANBURG
May 25, 2011

The Artists' Guild aims to support local artists by providing learning experiences, opportunities to share and to give back to the community, opportunities to show and sell their art.
We collaborate with other arts entities in the area with by-monthly pot luck dinners, and publicising each other's activities. We collaborate with the city for various activities, including putting art work in empty store fronts and providing feedback to suggestions and possible activities.
We send artists into the schools to teach and demonstrate, and are available to do programs and demonstruations for civic and private groups. We hold an annual Studio and Garden Tour to let te public see our work spaces and our art.
