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.
