Our Mission 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. 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

This painting, “Godzilla” by Steve Harlow, was a way for the artist to use the influence of an informal setting to create the piece. He chose this more popular subject matter over his usual cityscapes as it was one of his favorite movies as a kid.

He created this piece by first using an aluminum paint ground, then using a black and white oil paint, and finally a neon spray paint.

Doria Goocher spoke to us about the book as a vital contemporary art form. She told us that the Artists Guild and the San Diego Book Arts association go back to1926, 11 years after the Guild was formed. She demonstrated numerous ways books are made by hand. We all learned so much. Thank you, Doria, and thank you Carol Mansfield for the photos.

Pasha Turley brought in this piece in honor of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. She brought in the second of two photographs she had taken in the exact same spot by the wall.

The original photograph showed some East German soldiers standing by the wall. In this second photograph she captured this group of friends walking in the same place where the soldiers stood and where people had been killed.

She only brought in the second of the photographs as the first was buried away somewhere.

Jody Abssy shared a sketch rendering of nude female figures reclining based off of a cave painting in France from 11,000 B.C.E. To her the images looked really personal and she wanted to create her own.

It is possible that the images on the caves has to do with birthing animals due to images of birthing near by. Jody is interested in earthly images of goddesses which has inspired many of her pieces.

"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.
San Digo Artist Inducted into Library of Congress Collection. Contact [email protected] for an invite to the reception.
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!
I was involved in Life arts classes in Phoenix and Miami but it's been 40 years ago. I need to sign up with a group like yours to get work as a life arts model. I am 67, have an interesting face and body, (very hairy), not a pro but can hold short poses well and longer poses with a prop, self supplied.
