About the Santa Ynez Valley Arts and the Artists Guild

The Santa Ynez Valley Arts Association (or "SYV Arts") is a non-profit [501(c)(3)] organization open to all artists and supporters of the arts. Its purpose is to encourage artists to grow in artistic ability, to enable them to exhibit their works for sale, and to promote artistic awareness in the community-at-large. SYV Arts was previously known as the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley. The organization's primary permanent venue is the "Guild Room" in Gallery Los Olivos.

This web page focusses primarily on the Guild Room and activities that relate to it. For a broader view of the full scope of the organization's activities, please visit the SYV Arts web page .

Approximately 140 members support the organization's activities and are eligible to show their original fine art in the Guild Room at the Gallery Los Olivos. SYV Arts membership includes both amateur and professional artists, who work in a wide range of media: oil, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, collage, mixed media, color and B&W photography, photo-based digital art, and fiber art.

The organization sponsors many art activities, workshops, and scholarships for promising young artists in the Santa Ynez Valley.
