Telfair Academy Guild meetings are held on the second Monday of each month from September through May, with the exception of December. For those unable to attend during the day, there are five TAG@Night meetings on the second Wednesday every other month: Sep, Nov, Jan, Mar and July. Most of the day and evening meetings are held at the Jepson Center with a few exceptions held at local creative venues.

TAG and TAG@Night meetings offer either a morning coffee gathering or an evening wine reception option – both are followed by a TAGtalk with notable guest speakers. While members enjoy a social and educational experience at these meetings, they are also encouraged to become involved in the organization’s annual fund raising special events.

Recent speakers have included prominent curators, artists, writers, fine art photographers, architectural historians, preservationists and advocates for art and culture.

The Grapevine, TAG’s newsletter, features monthly content including updates from the organization’s President Judith Crawford, Board of Directors’ minutes, feature article on each month’s TAGtalk guest speaker and, announcements of up-coming special events and programs at Telfair Museums.

Greening of the Telfair
November 27

TAG volunteers headed by Elisabeth Biggerstaff decorate the Telfair Academy for the holiday season. Even though Mary Telfair herself would not have used greens on the outside of her home, the guild will deck the beautiful museum inside and out with greenery in the spirit of the season. The rest of the decorations will be just like Mary Telfair would have done; the festive table is laid complete with oysters, fowl, meat pies, carrots, beets, and other dishes of the period. The Octagon Room is set for after-dinner sweets, fruits, and the traditional Twelfth Night cake. The kitchen is alive with preparations for dinner, including recently acquired ingredients for an apple pie, loaves of homemade bread, butter, and a slab of bacon.
