Fort Mill Art Guild Meeting

The Fort Mill Art Guild has signed a lease for approx. 2000 sf of space at 213 Main Street in Downtown Fort Mill, and proudly announces President Marcia Kort Buike. The facility will be not only host meetings of the Guild, but will also serve as a community arts center, featuring classes, exhibits, lectures, demonstrations, outreach programs and a gallery for local artists of the Carolinas.

The new facility will be called The Art Mill and hopes to open its doors mid-January. The Guild is seeking local community members to serve as volunteers, patrons, donors, advocates as well as exhibitors. Membership fees and donations are tax-deductible as the Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

The next meeting of the Guild will be Tuesday, January 13, 2009, 7 pm at The Spratt Building, 215 Main Street in downtown Fort Mill. We will start with a short update of Guild activities, followed by our keynote speaker, Carla Garrison, owner of Green-Rice Gallery in the NoDa section of Charlotte. She will tell us the ins and outs of the gallery world and, in particular, what an artist must do to get his/her work in a gallery. We will then move over to The Art Mill next door for a sneak preview of the facilities.
