The Guild has several goals for promoting the visual arts in the community. A major goal is to provide an annual scholarship to benefit a local graduating high school art student.
The Guild has two art groups that meet on Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the Miriam Brown Community Center. Our members are given opportunities to learn from other artists and to exhibit their artwork. Artists of all skill levels and anyone with an interest in art are encouraged to join.
