The 35.85 Guild is located at latitude/longitude of 35.85, in the crossroads of the southeastern United States.  Our name is both a location and a heading, illustrating how we work with artists. 

Our Focus is Artist Development

  • Identify where they are as creatives and entrepreneurs (location), and 
  • Navigate where they are going in their creative careers (heading) 
We do this through
  • Helping artists to connect with one another, as well as opportunities to exhibit their work.
  • Offering structured artist-in-residence programs and projects.
  • Providing arts education for all skill and age levels.
  • Providing creative spaces that facilitate artistic endeavors.
  • Partnering across the city and across the world to develop and share the best ideas for supporting artists!
Artists offer a unique and integral component to any culture, and it is our goal to see artists contribute as professionals:  challenged to think big, encouraged to demonstrate excellence, and provided with the resources and community to make that happen.  With a solid understanding that this is a long-term commitment... 

We are in this for the journey.
