Center for the Arts

Artist Guilds

The Center for the Arts (CFA) offers a place for artists to gather and belong. Whether you are a musician, thespian, visual artist, writer, or educator, we invite you to join us!

The Literary Artist Guild, traditionally centered around poets, is now expanding to encompass all writing disciplines. As part of this growth, we’re inviting writers, authors, and poets to join us in establishing a vibrant community for creative expression and sharing. Our aim is to create a space where writers can flourish and showcase their work. Additionally, in collaboration with partners in our community, we’re actively developing initiatives to further enrich our literary endeavors.

The Colors of the Artist Guilds

Along with redesigning the website, CFA has designed a new logo with three prominent colors to represent the three artist guilds with CFA. Burgundy at the top of the circle is a representation of sophistication for the Visual Artist Guild while the blue in the center is representative of both the pen and the thoughtful, subdued nature of the Literary Artist Guild. Towards the bottom of the circle, the teal stands for the bold creativity of the Performance Artists Guild.
