We acknowledge the obstacles to becoming a self-supporting professional artist in today’s market, and therefore wish to remove some of these barriers. In concert with our commitment to this community, we launched the Get Artistic initiative in June 2018 to support the arts in its many forms—visual art, performance, music, writing—with an initial emphasis on local art.
Creature Comforts’ new Get Artistic DIY Grant will fund an independent, artist- or collective-led project or event in Athens in 2020. Learn more about the grant finalists at our last Get Artistic Art Party of the year (August 15)!
We are thrilled to partner with the City of Watkinsville and the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF) to present a public, outdoor exhibition of The Broadside Exhibition Project in the Watkinsville Woods city park. On view now through August 18, 2019.
The Broadside Exhibition Project: Verse 2 is the second annual Get Artistic showcase of original illustrated poems by curated pairs of local artists and poets. The exhibition is on view in Creature Comforts’ downtown Athens taproom through August 18, 2019.
