• Testimony of Guild Member, Terry D. Davis

    “Standing alone in the deep studio, in the middle of the galaxy, free from ordinary concerns, my friends at the Guild have given me, not only permission, but encouragement to go and explore the pillars of creation where stars are born or our mothers face where love is born. It is wildly wonderful when people notice and appreciate and support this side of me and share in the relevance of art as power and agency in and of life itself.” LEARN MORE

How To Become An Active Member

Some of our members are arts supporters and advocates who volunteer their time and/or resources to support the Guild’s mission. Most of our members are practicing artists who are anywhere from early in their artistic life to seasoned professionals. We welcome all levels of artists and look forward to talking with you and learning of your work in the arts.

Being part of a Guild is a collegial experience with members benefitting one another and their organization. We would like to get to know you and have you get to know us, both as individuals and as an organization. To make sure that the Guild can meet your expectations and that you will want to help in building and maintaining the strength of the organization and its ability to fulfill its mission, we would like to meet with you before Membership Registration.

If you are interested in applying for Active membership in the Southern Oregon Guild of Artists and Artisans and have not yet met with a Guild Board member, contact us through Guild President, Joyce Abrams, to arrange to meet, show your work and have your questions answered virtually or in person. We will deliver an application to you by mail or in person. When the Gallery reopens, you can pick up an application at the Guild Gallery and Art Center, learn about the Guild from the Gallery Host, and arrange to meet with a Board member.
