The Art Guild of Tellico Village was established in May 1997 by Mary Lee Wilkerson who initially taught watercolor classes at her dining room table. Organized as a  501(c)(3) association with an educational mission, AGTV supports and encourages creativity and appreciation of the visual arts through activities such as guest artist presentations, classes, workshops, and exhibits.  In the two decades since its founding the Art Guild has grown from several dozen to over two hundred members with classes offered regularly in Classroom A at Chota Recreation Center. AGTV’s ByLaws and financial summary are posted on our Members Only page.

The Art Guild is 100% run by volunteers.  It is through volunteering that some of our strongest friendships and community ties are formed. Participation in running AGTV is welcomed and new ideas are encouraged.  Please email to get involved.
