Long considered Alabama’s best art colony and one of the most popular artist conclaves in the southeast, the Sarah Carlisle Towery/Alabama Art Colony fosters the arts in other ways. It actively supports the arts in its community and maintains a permanent art collection of wonderful pieces which are on display at the Alexander City Board of Education. Our organization fosters strong relationships with other colonies in the southeast and elsewhere, and encourages our members to attend other opportunties for artistic growth.
We would like to invite you to participate in our annual Art Colony. This event in October, is an amazing, life-changing experience for both a "budding" or experienced artist. Children's Harbor on Lake Martin provides a serene and inspiring environment for the four and a half day workshop. As a participant, one will be inspired as they develop their skills under the guidance of renowned instructor artists.
Our board is working diligently to further the growth of the Colony. Make sure to like us on Facebook and check our website periodically for updates! Thank you for visiting, and we hope you attend the 2019 colony, scheduled for October 11 - October 16, 2019.
