Each year, 10 percent of sale proceeds benefits the Whetstone Community Center. In 2010, the guild donated $1,877.35 from the sale.
The Clintonville Arts Guild was founded in 1972 to promote the visual arts in the community and to “create a stimulating, encouraging and supportive environment in which local artists and craftspeople can share both their ideas and their passion for the arts,” according to the organization’s website, clintonvillearts.org. Members work in clay, fiber, glass, watercolors, acrylics, oils, photography, ink, precious metals, gemstones, beads, gourds, wood and found materials.
The guild offers monthly programs on topics ranging from art as a business, to creativity, to hands-on exploration of various techniques and materials.
The guild also hosts several member exhibitions each year in area galleries and provides a yearly scholarship for a local high school student going on to major in art.
