2017-18 Sponsorship Package

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 and is dedicated to serving the Arts Community of Charleston providing education in all aspects of the art world: workshops for the practicing artist or photographer, lectures for the burgeoning collector, and community outreach to serve the needs of the greater society through art. The Guild is known, and recognized by our State Legislature, for our outreach programs. Our volunteers work tirelessly on such community projects as our Art of Alzheimer’s, bringing the joy of art to elderly residents of nursing homes. We work with the physically disadvantaged and terminally ill through the Pattison’s Academy Summer Program, mentally disadvantaged and handicapped through our Extraordinary Arts Program, and finally we award numerous scholarships annually through the High School Senior Art Exhibit. We have our own gallery, The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery, hosting over seventy artists in the heart of historic Charleston. Annually, our members feature a large Members’ Exhibit at the Charleston Visitor Center, seen by more than ten thousand visitors monthly. We also annually host the Signature Show open to artists from all over South Carolina, and the Senior Art Exhibit where we award several scholarships to students from the surrounding three counties. All of these shows are presented in the Charleston Visitor Center. However, we could not do what we do or provide the services to our community without the help of our sponsors and supporters. Please consider becoming a sponsor for one or more of our noteworthy events!
