About Our Guild
The Artist Guild of Central MN was created in April 2011 to be a business and educational resource for artists, and to advocate for fine arts. The guild also seeks to provide opportunities for artistic expression, education, and appreciation in a supportive and nurturing environment.
The Artist Guild of Central MN is an active association of professional visual artists. The artists of the Guild work to generate opportunities for our member artists, and friends of the Guild. The Artist Guild of Central MN maintains a current website, with social media interfaces, along with brochures and advertising to promote our visibility.
AGCM activities include organizing exhibitions, workshops, and targeted marketing for sales of artwork. We expect all of our members to create the highest quality artwork possible, and to work cooperatively to promote the goals of our organization.
We seek to foster a deep appreciation for area artists, while facilitating the exhibition of original, dynamic works of art. We aim to establish a strong database of artists and art services, to create sales and opportunities by cultivation and enhancing a local collector base of patrons.
The AGCM meets on a monthly basis. Our meeting formats vary according to what we have currently happening, but monthly topics consist of: Sharing and critique of member work, discussion of new opportunities and exhibitions, and sharing the latest news of events in the art world.
