Welcome to the Oak Island Art Guild


About 30 years ago, a small group of local artists got together to paint, share their experiences, and critique their art. The group grew in size, and in time they formed the Oak Island Art Guild with the mission "to further the cultural arts for the residents of Oak Island, NC, and vicinity; to provide workshops and/or instruction for members of the community; to cooperate with other community organizations in furthering the cultural arts; and to organize and participate in visual arts shows."

Members of the Guild still get together monthly. January to October, on the second Friday at 9 am, there is a business meeting, followed by a workshop conducted by a guest instructor. The workshops vary and include drawing, painting, pottery, collage, stained glass, and more. In November, the Guild, in cooperation with the Oak Island Recreation Center, sponsors an arts and crafts show, Arts by the Shore. In December, the group meets to celebrate the holidays and elect officers for the coming year.

Phyllis Riley, a founding member, just celebrated her 90th!

Art Smart in mind, body and spirit!
