Hallway at the Chatham Arts Council Office before the Chatham Artists Guild art goes up
The Chatham Artists Guild began as the Studio Tour, a program of the Chatham Arts Council. The years went by and along the way the Studio Tour became its own entity. We changed our name to the Chatham Artists Guild to reflect our broader focus; we’re not just the one Tour anymore.
Now here we are 25 years later and to celebrate, the Guild and the Arts Council are putting on a show together! The Arts Council is now housed in a cute little house in downtown Pittsboro, just a couple blocks from the courthouse on 64 west. Guild artists have filled the walls and rooms with beautiful art and wow, does it look good! I keep meaning take “before and after shots” when I hang shows and always forget. Not this time!

Come see it for yourselves and all the pieces I didn’t catch in this sneak peek. Lots more to enjoy!
Reception : October 1st, 2 – 4pm. The show will be open to the public on three Saturdays in October: October 7, 14 and 21 from 2 -4 each day. Come take a look!
