Founded in 1915, with a mission to enhance the cultural profile of San Diego County, the Artists Guild is the oldest, continuously running art organization in our region.
(12)

Guild members were among the original founders of The San Diego Museum of Art in 1926 and later as a support organization became known as The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild. Today The Guild continues to support The Museum with Exhibitions, and sales of member’s art on an online sales gallery. Proceeds from these activities provide critical support to The Museum’s exhibitions, programs and acquisitions. Membership Benefits
Membership in the Guild is open to all artists and in all media. An artist wishing to join the Guild may apply here. Membership includes free inclusion in the Guild’s website to exhibit images of member’s artwork for sale and participation in all Guild activities. Future plans include initiating online art workshops. Topics will include painting, sculpting, art principles, elements of art photography, bringing artists into the digital age, etc. and be taught by our guild artists. We are proud to present a yearly All Member exhibit in different venues of San Diego County. We also schedule ARTouts throughout the year in members’ homes where artists meet, mingle and share their current art projects. Membership Meetings
Board Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in The Museum’s Mr. & Mrs. Frank Cockritz Boardroom and members are encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Jane Darin at (619) 684-5196 or email [email protected]. http://www.sdmart.org/artists-guild

While Warren Bakley had technical issues during our April 10 Zoom meeting, he is sharing the sculpture he had wanted to present: “CONNECTION THE DOTS.” It is a metaphor for the present wherein there exists an attempt to make sense out of information that comes to us is various sizes and shapes of which we try to reason some meaning to their relationship to each other and to us. It is not a level field as the dots appear on several planes and the connections are broken by seemingly unrelated lines and forms that distract from the ability to reasonably make connections.

The sculpture is stoneware clay with patinas and applied graphic forms. Size: 8” by 8” by 33". Warren photographed the artwork in two versions: one with a black and one with a white background,

On April 10, Scott Bruckner shared his beautiful sculpture
“The Proposal” with members and guests of the Artists Guild. Below are different angles of the sculpture. Made of Primavera wood, that is also called Blond Mahogany, it stands 31" tall, 9"D, and 11"W. It is mounted on stained walnut, and the accent pieces are painted Birch. It was made to play with the black and white theme, and used the accent pieces to break up the white negative space. See more of Scott’s work on his website: scottbruckner.com.

On April 10, Christine Ames joined us from Rome, Italy, and showed us her painting “A Tribute to Dante: The Light in a Dark Forest", a mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas. (acrylic paint, ink, and collage). It is 50x50cm which translates to about 20x20 inches.

Christine states: "My connection to Dante: This is the 700th year anniversary of Dante's death, and all around Italy, there are celebrations, which include his poetry readings, as well as art exhibitions. I have been invited to exhibit in Rome to celebrate this event. Dante is considered to be the father of the Italian language, as his "Divine Comedy" was written in everyday language, as opposed to Latin, which was considered to be the elite form of writing."

Christine was the third-place award winner in the Guild’s 2020 Winter Online Exhibition.

Attendees of our April 10 Guild Zoom meeting enjoyed “London Towne” by Bonnie Roth. Bonnie created the work by sculpting clay on a cradled gesso board, painted it with acrylics and sealed it with resin. The dimensions are 18 x 24 x 6”. Bonnie states that the work depicts an American tourist, desperately wanting to feel the palace guard’s fur hat, when the Queen spied her and was horrified!

Helena Faitelson just joined the Guild as an Associate Member and we welcomed her to the April 10 meeting. She showed an image of her mural "Let Equality Bloom,” which was commissioned by Mint House Project Gallery in Barrio Logan district and is located at 928 S. Evans Street, San Diego, CA 92113. The project itself was dedicated to gender equality.

Helena states: "Gender equality is a very important subject in modern society, so I believe we all have to maintain a dialog about it and to think about what else could be done. There are different ways to maintain this dialog and to allow people to express their feelings and thoughts about the subject and one of the ways is art. The way I wanted to express my vision of gender equality as something that still does not happen everywhere is by blooming. I believe when gender equality will happen it will look like a field of blooming flowers that make our world more colorful and beautiful"
The project has been created using exterior industrial acrylic paints and protected with polyurethane. Approximate size of the work is 19 ft length by 9 ft height.

"BOLD PERSPECTIVES". This will be my largest show of work in one place. A combination of at least 22 etchings, paintings, and photographs (two room solo show) in conjunction with the 'Galaxy of Glass' exhibition. Reception: Sept 7th, 5-7pm FALLBROOK ARTS CENTER, Main St, Fallbrook. Hope to see you there. 'Bold Perspectives' Janet Lee Sep. 7, 2019 - Oct. 20, 2019 The Rosalie & Spencer Lehmann and The Salon Galleries @ The Fallbrook Art Center Classically trained in England and at San Diego State University, Janet Lee’s show proposes a balance of dualities, delicate yet bold, which together form her personal perspective and aesthetic direction using ancient and modern techniques. Her imagery has a clear statement in any medium including printmaking, painting, and photography.

POETS WITHOUT BORDERS Featuring Beat Poet Laureate Chris Vannoy, National Slam Poetry Champion Viet Mai, Taco Shop Poetess Jackie Lopez, Izzy Blaze, Yvonne King & Igor Goldkind Will Perform at the Mesa College Gallery Reception for Mario Torero: "Artivismo Loko" Mario Torero is an internationally renowned muralist and a legend of the Chicano community. The title of the exhibition includes a term that Torero coined: “artivism” as the marriage of art and activism. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS is Chris Vannoy, Viet Mai, Yvonne King, Izzy Blaze, Jackie Lopez, Igor Goldkind, a gipsy band of poets inspired by and dedicated to the Artivist vision inspired by artist/muralist Mario Torero. By using both visual and literary arts to promote progressive social change and voice resistance to injustice. POETS WITHOUT BORDERS promotes the higher values of Freedom, Justice, Liberty, Planetary Sustainability and Human Rights. Mainly by actively bringing art back to the public sphere: where we live, where we eat and where we recreate. We also think Poetry is better than prayer because you don’t have to pretend that someone is listening. Mesa College Art Gallery: 619 388-2829 Poets Without Borders: Igor Goldkind 858 349 6429
During our April 14 Liberty Station meeting, Alessandra Moctezuma, Gallery Director and Museum Studies Director Professor at San Diego Mesa College, provided us with a fantastic presentation on “How to Present Your Artwork and Get Connected.” She graciously permitted us to publish a copy of her slides on our Guild website: www.sdmaag.org. Everyone had a lot of questions and appreciated her spending the morning with us. As during each meeting, attendees presented their artwork during the first hour. The next meeting will take place on Saturday, May 12, 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Dick Laub NTC Command Center – 2640 Historic Decatur Road. Our speaker will be mixed media and encaustic painter Michelle Haglund presenting “The Art of Encaustic Painting.” We thank ART DISTRICT Liberty Station for their continued sponsorship of these meetings.
Upcoming show this Saturday down the street!
