In 2002, the Art Guild established the Courtenay Hunt Scholarship which is an annual Art Scholarship presented to a Clay County High School Senior planning to pursue a career in the visual arts field or arts education. The Art Scholarship information is shared with all Clay County High Schools.   

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic changed life for everyone, including the Art Guild. As a result the Courtney Hunt Scholarship was awarded to Clay county high school art teachers in the form of art supply gift certificates and complimentary memberships to the Art Guild.  

The 2022 Scholarship Amount is $1000 and a gift certificate will be given to the teacher of the winning student for classroom art supplies.

The deadline for submission is April 1, 2022

To apply, students must download and complete the forms below, meet with the Art Guild review committee and present their portfolio. Other criteria include student’s academic records, community service, extra curricular activities and recommendations.

Deadline to apply is April 1, 2022

All Courtney Hunt Scholarships are awarded at the Art Guild’s May general meeting held on the first Tuesday of May each year.

The Art Room

Included are links to our local galleries. Remember that gallery owners are very busy people. It’s best to contact them via snail mail with a CD of your work rather than to walk in unannounced asking to have your work shown there. You might follow up with an email to ask if they received the CD and how they liked it. Most galleries are also frame shops. Don’t forget to patronize them!

Our local libraries happily show local artist’s work. The space varies and you should make a visit to each location to see how the lighting is and how much work can be hung. Call or stop in to sign up (Usually for a month at a time).

This is an easy way to initially get your work out in the public eye. Libraries generally do not take a commission but are often in need and a small donation would be welcomed.
