The Carolina Artists Guild A member of the rowan county arts council

The Carolina Artists Art Guild was formed in 1990 by working artists for the express purpose of providing opportunities for local artists to be recognized within Rowan County.

We currently meet the third Thursday of every month and are always welcoming new members!

We thrive on Community Involvement

Through community participation, our artists are able to exhibit and sell their works at various shows and events throughout the year. Through this, we also promote teaching and learning through:

  • Education & Art Programs

  • Demonstrations

  • Workshops

  • Shows

  • Contests

Shows & Events

Sponsored by Carolina Artists & Salisbury City Parks & Recreation/Civic Center

Carolina Artists Annual EXPO

Open to all members for a small fee. Monetary & ribbon awards presented for works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, pen & ink, pencil, charcoal, collage, and photography are accepted.
