Join us on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for our Guild meeting. We meet at the Arts Warehouse beside the Farmers Market on Murray Ave. We have demos or programs at each meeting by artists to give us tips and techniques on different mediums of art and other things of interest to artists. You can always pick up tips to incorporate into your own work and learn things to increase your skills.

The Artist Guild hosts a juried membership show at the Anderson Arts Center every year and there are other exhibition and sales opportunities throughout the year.
The Anderson Artists Guild will meet
on Monday, June 13, starting at 6:30 PM, at the Anderson Arts Center located at
110 Federal Street in Anderson
Our speaker will be JoAnne Anderson, an accomplished artist, teacher, and
juror known for her expressive watercolor and mixed media paintings. JoAnne's
paintings have won numerous awards in national competitions, and she has shared
her skills and enthusiasm for over 45 years by conducting figure workshops
across the United States and Europe.
Here, in JoAnne's words is what she will demonstrate:
"I will demonstrate
working with watercolor and gouache on hot-plate (smooth) Bristol board. This
process allows the artist to adjust and make changes while working and after
the paint has dried. You can lift-out areas you feel don’t work, add more paint
and keep adjusting the piece until you feel it expresses your goal. It is a
very freeing way to work. I look forward to the meeting."
