The Orange County Artists Guild is a non-profit organization seeking to increase the visibility and recognition of area artists and crafts people.
The Orange County Artists Guild is a group of over 100 artists based in Orange County, North Carolina. Established in 2000, the guild supports member artists with community and educational opportunities. The guild’s most visible public event is to organize and promote the annual Open Studio Tour.
We have made the hard decision to close membership applications for 2023 because of the exponential growth of our organization in recent years. We will spend this year revamping our organization so that we can more effectively serve our existing members and onboard new members.

I have settled down to opening my doors to the public during the the wonderful Orange County Open studio tour which has always been one of my favorites.
