  • Date: February 4, 2022
  • Time: 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
  • Location: 520 W. Waugh Street

To celebrate Black History Month, the Creative Arts Guild is delighted to present two exhibits that will run from February 1 to 28, 2022, with an opening reception on February 4 from 5:30-7:30pm that is free and open to the public.

Showing in Gallery FIVE20:
The Profound Responsibility of Individuality: A Selection of Works by Prominent African American Artists (1957-2013)

Curated by Joshua Guerrier and Robert Webb from their collections, the exhibit showcases more than 30 works on paper -- lithograph, silk screen, wood block print, lino cut print, etching, drawing, collage and watercolor -- spanning seven decades and including some of the most significant African American artists of the 20th century.

Showing in Gallery ONE11: Artists and Memorabilia of Lesotho
Curated by Murray Goodlet, Honorary Consul of Lesotho, the exhibit includes works created by some of the outstanding artists in that African nation and on display here for the first time. Originally, the artists were scheduled to visit Dalton, but the omicron variant made international travel a risk.

Creative Arts Guild Gallery Openings + Artist Receptions are a great opportunity for the public to get a first look at new exhibits and a chance to speak with the artists/curators. Our Gallery Openings are free, family-friendly, and open to all! Refreshments are available. They are typically scheduled for the first Friday of each month, with a few exceptions. Masks are requested at visitors' discretion.
