Murray Art Guild
The Murray Art Guild is a community based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting arts enrichment. The Guild was formed in 1967 when several like-minded community members established a place where artists could create art as well as exhibit and sell their work.
Fifty years and several locations later, this goal is still key to our mission as we provide arts programming for local youth and adults in a range of mediums, host year-round exhibitions and house community studios and an Art Market. The Murray Art Guild welcomes participants of all ages and abilities.
