Event Description: 

It is no secret that Sumter is home to many talented artists working in all mediums. The Sumter Artists Guild was founded in 1966 by some of Sumter's most prominent artists. Its membership includes amateur, professional artists and art enthusiasts. It’s mission is "to promote, support and foster interest in art and to create an opportunity for our community of artists to engage in cooperative artistic enterprises and to be further active in supporting a variety of activities associated with art education, art instruction and art appreciation in our community." The Guild has more than succeeded in its mission. The Guild was instrumental in founding the Sumter County Gallery of Art.

The Guild holds monthly meetings upstairs at the Sumter County Gallery of Art, September through May. Guild meetings are interesting and lively and include artist demonstrations, lectures, “show and tell” and fellowship. You can keep up with Guild happenings by following the Sumter Artists’ Guild on Facebook. Guild President Laura Cardello, along with a committed core group that includes Treasurer Vicki Hagner, Secretary Lisa Melton and Amanda Cox work hard to maintain the energy and enthusiasm of the Guild. And their efforts have paid off - In recent years the Guild has attracted many “new” and younger artists with lots of energy and new ideas.
