Programs

In addition to providing a variety of exhibition opportunities for local artists, the Guild also manages three core arts programs:

Artist in Residence

The Guild’s Artist in Residence Program provides professional studio space at Golden Belt Artist Studios for 6 months, a $1,000 stipend, regular support from and access to DAG’s professional resources and networks, and an exhibition in Room 100 Gallery at Golden Belt for one selected artist each year. If you have additional questions about the Artist in Residence Program, please contact our Education and Outreach Coordinator, Chellie LaPointe, at outreach@durhamartguild.org.

Creative Mentorship

The Creative Mentorship Program empowers students to discover and develop their creative voices and artistic skills through 20 weeks of dedicated work with a professional artist at Golden Belt Artist Studios, involvement with the local arts community through monthly field trips and workshops, and a month-long exhibition in Golden Belt’s Room 100 Gallery. The program is a collaborative partnership between Student U and the Durham Art Guild that started in 2013.

Art@Work

Art@Work is a project from the Durham Art Guild (DAG) launched in 2017 to connect local artists to local businesses who want to enhance their workspace with fresh local art. In addition to supporting local artist and the arts community, you have the opportunity to visually reflect the brand and values of your business by selecting art from a wide variety of artists, styles and mediums. Give your corporate office a bold and interesting look by leasing or purchasing original art from local artists. If you have additional questions about the Art@Work Program, please contact our Executive Director, Katie Seiz, at gallerydirector@durhamartguild.org.
