Before and After–CAG show at the CAC office–how art really enlivens a space !

Hallway before the art

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!
