This year the Arts Guild of Sonoma celebrates its 40th anniversary and solidifies its status as one of the oldest, continuously operating artists’ cooperatives in the state of California. The Arts Guild of Sonoma was founded to exhibit and advance the creative efforts of local and Bay Area artists and to promote in its members the highest standards of artistic expression and professionalism. Over the past years, the Guild has supported local and regional artists and arts education. In furtherance of its goals, the Guild sponsors and participates in a wide range of community outreach programs to encourage art appreciation and inspire direct participation in the arts.
In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we interviewed several of our earliest artists and compiled an entertaining and informative History of the Arts Guild of Sonoma.
Highlights from our 40th Anniversary reception are in our Spring 2017 Newsletter.
