Corinth Artist Guild Gallery

About Corinth Artist Guild Gallery

Nestled amongst the quaint assortment of shops in downtown Corinth is the Corinth Artist Guild Gallery, a haven for local artists and art enthusiasts. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., the gallery is located in the former Dodd Eye Care Clinic building at 609 North Fillmore Street in downtown Corinth, Mississippi next to smith Restaurant.

Guild president and founding member James “Sonny” Boatman hopes visitors to Corinth will consider taking home a piece of locally made art as a memento instead of a generic souvenir.

“Rather than getting something made in Taiwan that has ‘Corinth’ printed on it, why not choose something with local flavor that was produced in Corinth or the vicinity,” suggested Boatman.

The guild formed to provide a place for talented local artists to display their creations and to have art workshops and educational activities. The organization is non profit, and there is never an admission fee to browse the gallery. Many of the displayed items can be purchased.

“We have a wide variety of original art in many mediums and lots of prints and note cards made from the originals. We also have hand-crafted items such as ceramic and stained-glass pieces, pottery and turned-wood objects.”

Artists are represented from Corinth and a number of surrounding communities.

The gallery features special exhibits spotlighting the work of local artists and different types of mediums. Exhibits generally change on a monthly basis.

The gallery periodically hosts classes for people of all ages to help spark their creativity and hone their skills. Youths are involved through classes and exhibits by local high school students as part of the guild’s educational mission.

The gallery is supported financially by guild-paying dues members and donations from sales of art displayed at the gallery. This gallery is a 501c3 non-profit.
