The Lofts at Lakeview review team throroughly enjoyed this process and reviewing all the applications and art options. They have made some changes to their original plan. They most likely will be purchasing 20 works of art by 13 different artists for 12 spaces through this Durham Art Guild opportunity as opposed to around 12 artworks for the 6 previously determined spaces. The management review team has made their selections but they are still awaiting final approval from a supervisor before we can move forward.
The Durham Art Guild is excited to assist the Lofts at Lakeview of Durham in purchasing local art for some select widely visible common spaces on the main level of their facility before the end of the year.
There is so much going on this fall for our members and supporters to take advantage of! We are offering a FULL FALL FLASH MEMBERSHIP SALE through October 26th to hopefully encourage you to make the move on some of the following member opportunities:

Thanks to all of our applicants for sharing their work with the Durham Art Guild and with our Juror, Jennifer Sudul Edwards, Curator of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.
We had 160 artists submit work to this exhibition. There was an another amazing pool of work submitted this year for our juror to choose from. After a week of deliberation, Jennifer Sudul Edwards has made her final selections.
The Durham Art Guild is excited to continue a partnership with Castalia at Meadowmont in facilitating a unique venue to showcase regional artwork. Castalia at Meadowmont management and tenants seek larger scale 2-D works of art to display in their large, open and bright first floor lobby space programmed and curated by the Durham Art Guild. The aesthetic and image of the space lends itself to larger works focusing on form, line and/or abstraction but is not solely limited to those specific characteristics.
