About: Mission, Goals, Members...

More Than Just an Art Gallery!
Members of The Lake Marion Artisans Guild 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. Our Gallery's primary function is to generate funds for us to be able to afford our various community enhancement projects. 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.

The Lake Marion Artisans would like to thank Peter Groen  of COSITech.Net for his detailed and in-depth work in constructing our website while we played with our paints, clays, stain-glass, beads and wool fibers!

but still brilliant, enlightening our world" M.L.P.G.
