The Guild works to promote and provide art  education and awareness for all ages.  The Franklin County Arts Guild also provides a scholarship for a promising high school senior planning to study art or art education at the university level.

The Arts Guild provides artists an opportunity to exhibit and sell their works through the The Artisan Depot Gallery & Gift Shop, 204 E. Cumberland Street Cowan, TN. Guild members and other local artists sell work there.

The Franklin County Arts Guild actively promotes the arts within the community. The Guild, along with the Kiwanis Club, sponsors the annual Student Art Show. Local art teachers send their students’ best work to be judged.

FCAG has worked with several grants for with art at the core.  One important 2-year project was an after school program for at-risk middle schoolers.  Currently the Guild is hosting Community Art Shows at the Artisan Depot.  Each show is themed and any artists can put work in the show.  Membership or fees are not required.  There are six shows each  year with artists of all ages participating.
