About: Mission, Goals, Members...

More Than Just an Art Gallery!
Members of the Lake Marion Artisans (LMAG) are art enthusiasts who actively promote and nurture the Arts in our community. Our endeavors provide channels of public recognition to local Artisans, celebrating their rich diversity through community projects that exhibit their talent. One of the primary functions of our Art Gallery is to help generate funds for the various community enhancement projects we support. However, sales do not result in enough money to fund all of our projects, so our local community generously donates to our non-profit organization.     See Guild Bylaws and our Membership Application page

"Our mission is to support the arts, advance art education and encourage an appreciation for arts and crafts in the Lake Marion region." Our goals are to:
  • Promote the work of South Carolina artists and crafts people
  • Develop new talent from all segments of the community
  • Offer programs that provide training to the public in various arts and crafts
  • Schedule arts and crafts entertainment events for the public
  • Use art as a means to improve the education of our children, promote a greater sense of community and enhance economic development.       See Lake Marion Artisans (LMAG) Strategic Plan
Both visual and performing artists, as well as those who appreciate the arts, are welcome to become members. Works are on display online or in the Lake Marion Artisans Gallery located in downtown Summerton, SC.  Gallery hours are currently limited to:
