The Townsend Artisan Guild, founded in 2007, brings fine artists and fine crafts persons from East Tennessee together to promote education, exploration, awareness, and development of arts. The group, through the individual participation of its members, strives to promote community interest in and appreciation of the arts through participation in events, demonstrations, classes, festivals, and workshops.
The Guild provides member artists opportunities for self-promotion through art shows, exhibits, community activities, and printed and electronic means. Monthly meetings and other events provide members a creative forum to share ideas, to inspire others, and to explore business realities.
Membership is open to:
We seek East Tennessean artisans and fine crafts persons who are interested in working with other artisans to build a strong and supportive fine arts and fine crafts community.
The Guild manages a Gallery located at 7719 East Lamar Alexander Parkway, Townsend, TN. The Gallery provides an opportunity for its members to display and sell their work to those who live in our community and those who are visitors to the area. Participation in the Gallery is open on a quarterly basis.
