History

 

Founded in 1980 with 25 members, the Yarmouth Art Guild is now more than 125 members.

 

Through the years, our founding principles of providing our members and the community with opportunities in art expression, education and creation has never wavered.

 

We are composed of those who believe art is essential for the well-being and spirit of the community and its people.

Mission

The Yarmouth Art Guild's mission is to provide education and enrichment experiences for its members as well as to seek venues for the exhibition of their artwork.

 

The Guild provides such experiences through museum visits, artist demonstrations, indoor and outdoor art exhibits, fundraisers, awards, and workshops..

 

Through its interaction with other organizations and charities in the community, the Yarmouth Art Guild supports and encourages those who share in its vision.
