President’s message…

Hello everyone,

I am honored to be your president for the Summerville Artist Guild. I’d like to thank our Governing Board Members, Becky Sharpe, Carla Hood, Carol Trhlik, Denise Jacob, Diane Watkins, Hazel Keefer, Helen Beacham, Maureen Gonzalez, Renee Bruce, Waverly Brown, and Susan Griebel, along with Diana Barth, Jan Dalton, Bernadette Wladyka. and Sarah Kuhnell, all those past and present for volunteering their time and efforts to make this guild the best it can be.

I’d like to thank the board members present along with all of you for coming to the Summerville Artist Guild Meet and Greet on Saturday, Jan. 18th. We loved getting together to share stories and ideas with everyone present. We were also treated to a basic framing workshop at no charge by Renee Bruce and Jan Dalton. A special thank you goes out to everyone who made this day a success; we appreciate it so much.

Paint, Paint, Paint! It’s just about time for the Summerville Artist Guild All Members Show in March. It’s open to any member of the guild who’d like to hang a painting. You do not have to be a Juried In artist for this show. Please look for more information on the Cover Design Contest from our Exhibitions Chair; Maureen Gonzalez and her team. Any questions about the exhibit please contact Maureen at . 

Our next SAG meeting is on March 5, 2020. Kyle Stuckey is scheduled to do a Painting with Oil demonstration. That same evening, we’ll have our Jurying In; open to all SAG members who contact me. 

We’ll have a tent at the Flowertown Festival from April 3 through April 5, 2020. If you’d like to sign up to help out at the tent please email Denise Jacob at or Jan Kelley at

Our 44th Annual Judged Exhibition will be in September of 2020 at the North Charleston City Gallery.

It’s great to see people excited and having fun participating in the Summerville Artist Guild events. We have a lot planned for the upcoming months and can always use more help. If you’d like to volunteer to be on a committee please contact us at .
We look forward to seeing you soon,

For the Love of Art,
Jan Kelley
