Did you know we have an Art Guild in Semmes?
Mary Ellen Ward Art Guild was founded in 2010 to promote art and to provide an opportunity for local artists to come together with like-minded people. It is named for a beloved teacher who taught at Wilmer School, Semmes High School, MGM and Faith Academy. Her love affair with art began in 1948 and continued until her death in 1998. She is remembered for her devotion and encouragement to her students.
The Art Guild Membership is open to all adults interested in Art. Monthly meetings take place on the first Tuesday of the month in the Community Room at Semmes Public Library at 1 o’clock.
A free Adult Art Class is sponsored by the art guild and meets every Tuesday at 12 o’clock in the community room.

We had a show & tell at our monthly meeting. Philippe showed his 3-tier hand made pine straw basket. The construction of this was amazing. Cynthia brought a collection of hand-painted Russian eggs. That takes a lot of time and patience, they are beautiful. Last, but certainly not least, Jeanette's grand painted glass bulbs. Stunning Camellias painted on glass. If you're interested in coming to our painting/art group, we meet on the third Wednesday of the month at the Semmes Regional Library. ... See MoreSee Less
