AAG has been closely monitoring the CDC for information on the escalating spread of COVID-19 in order to protect the health of our community and neighbors.

We implement these changes in an effort to support social distancing and decrease public density. Please understand that this was not an easy decision for us to make. We are grateful for the support of our sponsors, patrons, staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to create these events.
We will keep you updated as to when we will reopen to the public. We urge you to prioritize your health and safety.
Let’s keep each other safe & healthy during these troubling times.
President, Arizona Artists Guild
Arizona Artists Guild is an organization devoted to visual art in all media.
The Arizona Artists Guild was founded in 1928, just 16 years after Arizona’s statehood. AAG was then and continues to be a place for artists of all types to gather together for creative sharing and learning. Since that time many notable artists have come through our doors. Today AAG has over 300 active members ranging in artistic experience from the beginner to the retired master.
Arizona Artists Guild continues its tradition of promoting excellence in the arts in all media. Our members’ artwork runs the gamut: with some steeped in tradition while others explore the contemporary techniques of this digital era; from figurative to non-objective. Our workshops, programs and exhibitions convey this diversity.
All who are interested in the creative aspects of life are welcome to attend our monthly meetings, participate in our workshops and join our guild. As artists, we are united in the joys and the struggles of making something new and communicating a message, of mastering tools, materials, and ideas. It’s the creative journey that binds us. We all know that as easy as it may look, making art is not easy.
Arizona Artists Guild is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization led by volunteers dedicated to providing and promoting opportunities in the visual arts including exhibitions, education, and outreach programs.
Membership is made up of professional as well as aspiring artists working in a variety of media. The Guild offers five types of membership: Associate, Juried, Honorary, Golden and Life.
Join us at our open meetings held on the third Tuesday of each month, September through May (no meeting in December). A pre-meeting social hour begins at 5 p.m. (feel free to bring a brown bag dinner) with a critique session from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Our general meeting is held at 7 p.m. with our program featuring a guest artist starting at 7:30. AAG is conveniently located on 7th Avenue just South of Union Hills at 18411 N. 7th Ave., in Phoenix, AZ 85023 (Mailing address is P. O. Box 41534, Phoenix, AZ 85080).
