As we come to the one year anniversary of reopening our doors, The Art Guild has created a “Thank You” Exhibit for the dedicated board members, studio artists and instructors, who stuck by us and helped us through the process. This show celebrates their hard work and dedication.

A range of styles and materials runs the gamut – from very traditional landscapes in oil to sculpture and printmaking to modern abstract mixed media.

A potluck reception will be held on Wednesday July 22 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
