A R T S 262 CS D Charleston Artist Guild 843-722-2425 CHARLESTON ARTIST GUILD The Charleston Artist Guild (CAG) was founded well over half a century ago by a small group of local artists—including Anne Worsham Richardson, Alfred Heber Hutty and Elizabeth O'Neill Verner—who sought a way not only to display their own works, but to network with other artists in the city and to become more involved with the community. Today, over 70 art- ists are featured in the extensive gallery, now at 160 East Bay St., all of whom contribute to the or- ganization's outreach programs. A non-proft organization, CAG is constantly busy fulflling the wishes of its founders. To that end, the Guild works with Arts for Alzheimer's by providing awards for their high school scholarship program, and it works with Extraordinary Arts and Pattison's Academy. Begin- ning in September, new exhib- iting members will be juried in to the gallery. September is also when CAG's monthly meetings with art demonstrations—always open to the public—will resume. The Guild now has nearly 700 members, many of whom will be featured at CAG's annual Members' Exhibition at the Charleston Visitor Center in February.
