WHERE LOCAL ARTISTS CAN COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS
Join us! The Tuscarawas County Art Guild journey is one that will enrich your life and make it more colorful.
The Tuscarawas County Art Guild is represented by Tuscarawas County artists in a wide variety of visual art forms including ceramics, drawing, fiber, jewelry, painting, printing, sculpture, collage, stained glass, photography, watercolor, textile art, wood, and more. They exhibit their work in local shows, businesses and competitions.
The Tuscarawas County Art Guild is a non-profit organization of people interested in the advancement of the fine arts. The membership consists of professional and amateur artists expressing themselves through a wide variety of media. The Guild strives to promote public appreciation for the support of its endeavors through community involvement. The Guild is supported by annual dues, commissions on sales from Art Guild shows, and outside contributions. For the past ten years, the Guild has made scholarship fund donations to local High Schools for graduating seniors that are continuing their studies in Visual Arts.

To promote active participation in the arts by area residents.
To encourage the public to appreciate original, creative art.
To educate the members and the public to better art.
