Allentown Art Guild
The Allentown Art Guild was formed in 2006 by three local artists. They felt there was a need for an association of professional and non-professional artists. Currently the Guild is comprised of ~20 members from the Allentown and the surrounding areas. The Guild is a non-profit organization and it holds monthly meetings that include workshops, demonstrations and lectures by distinguished artists. The public is invited to attend many of these events since it is the Guild’s goal to encourage art appreciation in our community as well as to encourage artistic growth among its members. To help encourage young artists in the community, the Guild has sponsored an annual art award of $500 to a graduating Allentown High School senior.
Pictured below is a collaborative community project by the guild members that was on display in the Allentown Library. This was originally a photograph of the old mill in Allentown that was divided into 27 pieces. Each member took a square and interpreted that square on the piece of canvas provided.
