The Douglas County Art Guild, founded in 1973, is an organization composed of practicing artists and friends of the visual arts in Douglas County. The organization’s mission is to promote the arts in the community while advancing local artists through networking and exhibition opportunities. The Guild provides informative lectures, notable speakers, and educational demonstrations across all mediums in an effort to stimulate and inspire its members. Meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at St. Julian’s Episcopal Church, 5400 Stewart Mill Road in Douglasville.

Some notable artists featured in this exhibit include:

As well as being a long-time member of the DC Art Guild, Elizabeth Mobley is the CAC’s resident teaching artist in glassworks. She makes beautiful fused glass panels and housewares, including these unique vases with swirling colors and floral elements.

Ken Paradise’s acrylic paintings, such as Keeping Sigmund, capture memories of everyday life and nature as seen through the eyes of a painter. Using naturalistic color and careful brushstrokes, Paradise portrays moments that may have otherwise been lost in time.

Jane Ballou uses gourds as her main medium. Using natural shapes and fibers, these masks, Sun God and Shaman, are evocative of tribal native artwork used in ritual ceremonies. Ballou was also featured recently in the CAC’s Pop Up Arts Shop.

The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County, located at 8652 Campbellton Street in historic downtown Douglasville, Georgia, is open Mondays through Fridays, 9 am to 5 pm.
