The Owensboro Art Guild is a group of local artists of all mediums.  From painters to jewelry makers, they come together monthly for demonstrations or to present works in progress for critiques and advice.  They also plan events in the community so members can display pieces to the public for sale.

I know a lot of artists who work "day jobs" and create art as a side hustle, myself included.  Owensboro also has some artists who have taken the leap of faith to support themselves solely with what they create. We've all heard of the term "starving artist." However, groups like the art guild and businesses like Fetta Specialty Pizza and Spirits work to make sure creative folks in town have a place to sell their wares and be successful.

Are you an artist? Applications are still open for anyone 18 years and older who would like to join in the fun.  There is a $30 fee for Guild members or $40 for non-members which is super affordable. So, if you have been wanting to get your art out into the world, this is a perfect chance to go for it.  Participating artists will also have their artwork displayed in the lobby of Independence Bank for July. If that isn't enticing enough, there will be cash awards and prizes for chosen artists.
