The Guild's central objective is to assist local artists in improving their incomes and reputations. We are working to make our art community an art buying destination like the towns of Mendocino and Carmel.

Our priorities:
  1. Developing more opportunities to sell art here: venues, shows, Studio Tour.
  2. Producing more out-of-area publicity to bring potential art-buying tourists here.
  3. More emphasis on art education: classes, demonstrations, forums.
  4. Developing a community of artists: more get-togethers, emphasis on interaction with other artists.
  5. Developing a creative environment for the arts, a more creativity-friendly community.
  6. Making our local area a more beautiful, artistic place; art everywhere.
  7. Develop favorable group purchase deals for art supplies.
