We began in 2018 as the Denton Artisans Guild located in Denton, NC. We grew as an Art Guild in our first few years and then Covid-19 hit and slowed us down.
At the end of 2020 we started meeting again, deciding it was more important to be a community of artists and crafters that supported each other and our community, rather than live in isolation and fear. We re-branded ourselves as "The Hometown Artisans Guild" so that we could be more inclusive of members from many small towns in the area, not just Denton.
We opened an Art Gallery located at Evenbrooke Marketplace located in Lexington, NC. This space gives our members a place to market their creative endeavors.
We meet once a month on the second Wednesday of the month at the Lexington Public Library located at 602 S Main St, Lexington, NC 27292. Our meetings/members classes are from 5:30pm - 7:00pm. Everyone is welcome to come to our meetings and find out what a crazy fun group of creative people we are.
Mission Statement: To serve our communities through the arts. That includes serving ALL people and all ARTS.
The Hometown Artisans Guild hosts a monthly Members Art Class the second Wednesday of every month, usually hosted at the Lexington Public Library. These classes are varied artistic mediums, taught by our members for our member. The cost per class varies based on supply costs, but typically is around $15 a class. We call all our classes, no matter the medium, "Art Therapy". You are sure to leave one of our classes lifted up in spirit and mood.

Thanks to Arts Davidson County we were able to host an Art Camp in conjunction with the Kiwanis Club of Lexington during the Summer of 2022 for over 60 disadvantaged youth. The funding for this Community Art Project is made possible by a “SmartArts Grant” through Arts Davidson County.
If you are a local business owner we hope you will feel compelled to become a Patron of the ARTS in a way that will help us serve our communities. Please reach out to us, we want to hear from you and would be excited to partner with you in a meaningful way that benefits everyone!
