SUPPORT LOCAL ART!!
Summer Membership Drive
The summer is always a busy time at the St. Louis Artists' Guild and Summer 2009 is certainly no different! Our first Summer Membership Drive began on July 1st. The aim of the Drive is to reach more individuals with what the Artists' Guild has to offer and to encourage them to become involved in all the unique Exhibitions, Groups and Workshops taking place at the St. Louis Artists' Guild.
As the oldest art guild west of the Mississippi River, we have a rich history that is growing and evolving with today's culture. It's the perfect time to get involved! As a valued member of the St. Louis Artists' Guild, we want your help!
During this Summer Membership Drive (July 1st- Aug 30th), we are offering new members a discounted membership price of $15 for students 21 and under (originally $25), $30 for individuals (originally $65), and $75 for a family (originally $85). For every person you refer who purchases a membership, you will receive $5 of Guild Cash. Simply remind the person you refer to write your name on the provided line on their membership form.
Guild Cash may be used for: purchases in the Guild Gift Shop, Exhibition submittal fees, and enrollment in Classes and Workshops (up to 35% of purchase price). If you have not renewed your membership for 2009, we invite you to take advantage of these discounted prices.
Please take this opportunity to rally around your Guild to increase our membership base and in turn increase our ability to exhibit, support, and promote the visual arts. Thank you! For more details, please visit the Artists' Guild's Web site.
Taste of St. Louis Artist Village 2009
We would like to extend our gratitude for your participation in the Central West End Art Fair and Taste. Thanks to your support, the event was an incredible success. With thousands of patrons in attendance at the event, the St. Louis Artists' Guild received a great deal of exposure resulting in thirteen new members joining the guild. We hope that the Central West End Art Fair and Taste will become a successful annual event that draws the citizens to this beautiful neighborhood for years to come.
Now with the Central West End Art Fair and Taste completed, the St. Louis Artists' Guild turns its attention to the upcoming Taste of St. Louis Artist Village in October.
We would like to personally invite all St. Louis Artists' Guild members to participate in this year's Taste of St. Louis Artist Village. We anticipate drawing over half a million guests to this year's event. The Taste wishes to appeal to a demographic of St. Louis citizens who appreciate higher end food, fine art, and great living. Event attendees will have the opportunity to see the city's artistic talent at the largest art event in St. Louis, the Taste's Artist Village.
This year, the Artist Village at the Taste will be centrally located in the most high traffic area of the event to provide artists with the maximum possible exposure. The Artist Village consists of various artistic events as well as booths set up by individual artists who will also submit a piece of artwork to a juried exhibition. The St. Louis Artists' Guild will jury this year's art exhibition.
We encourage all members to take advantage of this event and enter this year's competition by applying for an artist's booth. The application to participate in the artists' booths as well as the other competitions and events being held at this year's Taste is available here.
