Prattauga Art Guild
The Prattauga Art Guild office is located in the Creative Arts Center at 342 Chestnut Street behind City Hall in historic Downtown Prattville. This 1890’s house is nestled among the live oaks and magnolias along the Autauga Creek and the beautiful Autauga Creekwalk. 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 artist Charlie “Tin Man” Lucas, 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.
Art classes and workshops for children and adults are offered in a variety of media at the Creative Arts Center. Award winning artists and art teachers offer classes in painting, drawing, clay, and more.
Through its various exhibits and programs, the Prattauga Art Guild brings fine arts and art education to Prattville and the River Region. As a part of the Prattville Council for the Creative and Performing Arts, the Art Guild is funded by the City of Prattville.
