The Durham Art Guild has supported the vibrant, growing and changing creative communities throughout the region for over seven decades and we need YOU to keep these efforts going:

  • Art exhibitions across multiple public partnership venues showcasing over 300 regional artists. These are physical exhibits by appointment and also virtual in today’s way of adapting and operating safely.
  • Arts related events including receptions, lectures, community building gatherings and professional development workshops. These events too have moved to virtual formats for the time being for safety.
  • The Creative Mentorship Program, which pairs local high school students and professional artists in creative collaboration and exploration.
  • The Artist in Residence Program, which provides local emerging artists with free studio space and grant $.
  • The Art@Work Program, which connects local artists to local businesses and enhances our creative economy. We are also now building upon an Art@Home concept to help those seeking art for their personal spaces that they are spending more time in these days!
