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.
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.

Annual Youth Art Exhibit to Showcase Creativity of Local Students
The Prattauga Art Guild will hold its Annual Youth Art Show during May with an Awards Reception on Saturday, May 3, in conjunction with Prattville City Fest. Local students in grades K-12 are invited to be a part of this exhibit and to submit artwork that they have created in art class, at home, at church, etc.
This exhibit includes six categories in four grade divisions. Artwork includes painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and printmaking. Artwork can be submitted on Friday, April 25, from 3-6pm or Saturday, April 26, from 10am-2pm at the Prattville Creative Arts Center on Chestnut Street behind City Hall/Police Station.
"We want to encourage our youth to express their creativity," said this year's show chairman, Donna Pate. "Children have so much to say with their artwork and this event allows them to share their ideas with their family and friends and the community in a gallery setting."
"We are thrilled to have the students receive their awards on stage this year as part of the Prattville City Fest events. We know the children will be excited about getting to go on stage and accept their awards from Mayor Gillespie," said Cultural Arts and Special Events Coordinator Barbara Simpson.
For more information about the show, contact the Special Events Office at 334/595-0854.
