Local Artists Groups


Connecting with an artist group is a great way to make new friends and introduce yourself to the regional artist community. It is also a good first step if you are interested in exhibiting at the Art Center, as these groups organize periodic group exhibits with us.


The Plein Air Artists of Central Kentucky share a love of creating artwork outdoors. During the summer months, the group meets for weekly “art-outs” at regional locations. In the winter, they meet at the Art Center for peer-learning sessions. Artists working in any medium are welcome (not just painters!). There are no fees to participate.

Gathering Artists

The Gathering Artists is Danville’s longest-standing artist society. There are no membership dues, and artists working in any medium are welcome. The Gathering Artists typically present two or three group shows per year at locations around Danville. The group meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month at the Art Center at 10:15am.
