The Artists’ Guild began in 2012 when a few artists got together to share their work, offer support, develop friendships and show and sell their artwork. As the Guild grew, they began adding trips to local galleries, offering critiques and plein air painting opportunities.

The Lewisburg Photography Club started in 2017 and is a collection of both amateur and professional photographers living in the Lewisburg area and aims to support and encourage photographers of all skill levels. Photography Club meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village's common building.
