Prattauga Art Guild

The Prattauga Art Guild office is located in the Prattville Creative Arts Center at 342 South Chestnut Street behind City Hall in historic Downtown Prattville. This 1890’s house is nestled among the live oaks and magnolias along Autauga Creek and Prattville’s beautiful Creek Walk. The Center is also home to The Art Gallery which features works by members of the Prattauga Art Guild and guest artists, with exhibits changing throughout the year.

The Art Gallery is home to the Art Guild’s permanent collection of artwork by Prattville’s own internationally known artists, Charlie “Tin Man” Lucas and The Artist Nall; Russell Everett, artist and stone sculptor of Troy University; and internationally recognized quilt artist, Yvonne Wells of Tuscaloosa, as well as other national, regional and local artists.

Coffee House Event to Feature Local Artists, Musicians, and Writers

In the spirit of the Coffee Houses of the 60’s, the Prattauga Art Guild will host its 6th annual Wake Up and Smell the Coffee event on Sunday, August 5, from 2:00-5:00 p.m.

This event is sponsored by the Prattauga Art Guild and the City of Prattville and is devoted to recognizing local artists, musicians, and writers. As always, this year's event will feature an art exhibit by members of the Prattauga Art Guild. In addition, the event will pay special tribute to Prattville's Echo7 recording studio and NewSouth Books in Montgomery.

Echo7 studio is owned and operated by Tony Castaldo, who has devoted a great deal of his time and energy to developing and recording local singer-songwriters. He also is a member of the Prattville Creative and Performing Arts Council and volunteers his time and talent to supporting the cultural arts in Prattville.

NewSouth Books is a publishing company in Montgomery that has developed and published many authors from throughout the River Region, including Prattville. NewSouth owners, Randall Williams and Suzanne LaRosa, work hard to encourage and promote local writers.

Tribute also will be paid to the Montgomery Area Musicians Association, which is a local non-profit group whose primary aim is to help recognize and promote local musicians, but who also conducts training activities for young aspiring musicians and songwriters.

There will, of course, be a coffee bar along with various treats and the proceeds from the sale of coffee and treats will all go to the Prattauga Art Guild for future projects.

The event will be held at the Doster Community Center at 424 South Northington Street in downtown Prattville. There will be no charge for admission. For further information on this event, contact the Special Events office at 334-595-0854 or visit Facebook.com/prattaugaartguild.
