What is TAG?
TAG is an acronym for the Trenholm Artists
Guild. Established in 1971, Trenholm Artists Guild is an incorporated, non-profit
organization located in Columbia, South Carolina. It is designated a 501 (c) (3) organization by the IRS so donations to TAG are tax deductible.
TAG was created to encourage and stimulate the practice and appreciation of the creative arts among the people living in the greater Columbia area of South Carolina. To achieve this goal TAG works cooperatively with other groups to help build audiences and participation in the arts.
the Richland County Recreation Commission since its inception, TAG meetings are held at Forest Lake Park. When the the RCRC Board resolved on May 17th, 2004 to make sweeping changes in its Public Use Policies, TAG was grandfathered in as an organization qualified for the waiving of charges for the use of meeting rooms in Forest Lake Park.
TAG has a membership of about 190. The group includes both amateur and professional artists who work in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, drawing, sculpture, photography and other creative media.
Many TAG members work full-time in the field of art as art teachers, graphic
artists or professional artists. Other TAG members create for the enjoyment it brings and
still others are members because they simply enjoy the programs offered
through the guild. TAG brings together adults living in the Columbia, S.C.
area with a common interest – ART!
How and when did this website originate?
