The Art Guild of Louisiana is a member driven organization. We strive to provide services that are of value to our members and other artists; exhibit opportunities for new/emerging artists as well as more accomplished artists, networking with other artists to help build confidence and quality workshops for artistic development. AGL also provides excellent volunteer opportunities for members who want to be actively involved in supporting the arts in our community on a grass roots level. In addition to all the health benefits of being creative, being a member of the Art Guild of Louisiana offers its members a number of benefits supporting their development as an artist:

  • discounted fees for workshops
  • use of well lighted and equipped open studio space
  • member only exhibits in public spaces
  • discounted art supplies at select art shops
  • art reference library
  • professional quality photography of members' artwork
  • online personal artist gallery on the guild website
  • networking with other artists

If you are not an "artist" and painting/drawing is not your thing ... If you just love art and have a passion for supporting local art and artists who contribute to the artistic enrichment of our community, we welcome your membership as an art supporter. Or, perhaps you know a budding artist, 18 or older, or a friend who wants to start a second or third "life chapter" in art, whose artistic endeavor you would like to encourage; at only $40 a year, a membership in the guild makes a wonderful gift.

Come paint and exhibit with Art Guild of Louisiana! Hope to see you around!
