About the St. Louis Artists’ Guild
The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is a resource and advocate for creative expression. In addition to serving the Midwest as a center that exhibits, supports and promotes the visual arts, it also sponsors and conducts community service programs.
Established in 1886, the St. Louis Artists’ Guild is the oldest arts organization west of the Mississippi. The Guild provides educational programs and exhibition opportunities for art students, working artists, and arts enthusiasts in the greater St. Louis area and the Midwest region.
Sections at the Guild are groups formed within the larger membership to focus on topics of special interest. Sections at the Guild include the Illustration Section, Architecture Section, Fine Arts Section, Photography Section, and Artisans Section.
The Guild also offers several studio groups which meet regularly to paint, draw, or sketch in an open studio setting.
The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is headquartered in a beautifully restored 1920's era mansion, located at Two Oak Knoll Park in Clayton. Facilities include galleries, classrooms, drawing and painting studios, meeting rooms, and a fully equipped print studio and black and white darkroom.
