OUR MISSION is to bring together the artists of our county, encouraging them in their talents by providing means to display and sell their work. To bring awareness of artistic endeavors to the community at large by presenting performing and visual arts programs. OUR VISION is to create an atmosphere of appreciation of the uniqueness of artistic endeavors for our community and encourage youth in their pursuit of the fine arts.
The Guthrie County Arts Council began in late spring of 2011 with visionary parties from communities within Guthrie County representing the visual arts and performing arts. From these initial meetings, the Arts Council gathered local artists to display their work at an inaugural art show in the fall of 2011 at the Mary Barnett Library in Guthrie Center. The event proved to be a success, by the attendance of both artists and patrons; we were encouraged to press on.
Today, we continue to organize two annual art shows (Art in the Village and Fall Festival), host and sponsor various other performance events, and coordinate a volunteer-ran artisan gallery called Art on State in Guthrie Center.
