Come join us for our February Guild update on local happenings and art opportunities in the area. We will have a special guest who has been working to bring affordable artist studio space to North Charleston and we will check in on the collaborative installation project progress and make sure we have a plan in place for completion and installation. Come be involved and contribute all of your wonderful ideas!!
Awesome work!! Thanks to everyone who went out to the state house to advocate for the arts in our schools and our communities!
Guild Members Monthly Meeting
Come join us for our first meeting of the new year! We are going to start our year off with a collaborative art project that will showcase the unique talents and styles of each of our members. I have submitted a proposal to instal our completed work at City Hall in North Charleston which will allow our group to establish more of a presence in the community and show who we are individually and what we can do as a collective.
We will individually ...be working on wood panels (2"d x 6"w x 36'h) in a style that is unique to you and your medium/interest. Basic supplies will be provided but please feel free to bring any supplies that might assist you in creating a piece that shows off who you are or what medium you work in primarily. If you are a photographer, bring some photos. If you are a performer, think about how that might translate to a 2-D format.
As always, guests are always welcome at our meetings, there is never a charge to come and visit. It's only $30 to join the guild for the year and we do not jury so all levels and mediums are welcome.
Artists, if you would like to be one of our speakers in the upcoming months please let me know. You do not have to be a member to speak, in fact most of our speakers are guests.
I hope to see all of you there!!!
