Pittsboro, NC – The Chatham Artists Guild (CAG) announces the opening of their 2022 Membership Drive. Artists 18 years of age or older, in all mediums, that reside or work in a studio in Chatham County may apply. The deadline for application is October 31.
“We have moved up the dates for artists to apply,” said Gina Harrison, CAG President. “New members selected by jury will join the Guild in January to receive a full year of benefits. We are actively seeking exhibition opportunities year round and want new members to benefit from that effort.
The application process has been streamlined to make it as easy as possible for entrants to apply. Applicants can visit chathamartistsguild.org/membership to begin their application with a small entry fee paid online.
CAG was founded on the concept of creating an artists’ collective. Members can connect with a supportive community of working artists, participate in local exhibits and shows, and receive alerts about calls for artists, professional development and more. In addition, all members benefit from greater exposure through individual listings in the Artist Directory and image gallery hosted on the Guild’s website. Finally, new members may opt to join the organization’s signature event, the Annual Studio Tour.
Held the first two weekends in December, the annual tour of artist studios was the first of its kind in North Carolina and remains instrumental in building community among local artists. The highly respected art venue connects the public with Chatham County artists, providing a rare glimpse into the creative process. New artists receive mentoring and support for the event to ensure their success.
