The Charleston Artist Guild (CAG) began in 1953 when seven local Charleston artists launched the organization in an effort to help artists network and involve themselves in community programs. Today, the Charleston Artist Guild is a nonprofit organization with over 600 members, whose mission is to promote the practice, teaching, and recognition of Fine Arts in Greater Charleston, South Carolina.
