About the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley

The Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley 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.

The Artists Guild's primary permanent venue is in Gallery Los Olivos, which is located at 2920 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos, CA 93441 and is open daily 10 - 5 (10 - 4 December and January).

Approximately 120 members support Guild activities and are eligible to show their original fine art in the Guild Room at the Gallery Los Olivos. Guild 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 Artists Guild sponsors many art activities, workshops, and scholarships for promising young artists in the Santa Ynez Valley.
