Our Spotlight Artist for May
The Georgia Coastal Artists Guild
The Beauty of the Golden Isles has attracted artists for many years. Over the years, professional groups have formed among these local artists.
In 1983 several artist members of the Glynn Visual Arts association, encouraged by artist and instructor Bill Hendrix, decided to form a guild of professional artists. The goals of this guild were to promote high-quality art through a jury process for new members and to market members’ works.
Today, the 35-member Georgia Coastal Artists Guild represents a varied array of media and styles and continues to be involved in numerous art-related events in the coastal community, holding at least three exhibits each year. Members work to broaden their knowledge through classes, workshops, and presentations by guest speakers at their monthly meetings. The common desire to further art and art education in the community leads many Guild members to participate in activities such as volunteering their time with local school children.
