Founded in 1961 the, Artist's Guild of San Francisco is a group of gallery quality artists who personally show their original paintings, sculpture and traditional hand-pulled prints (no giclees or photography) at weekend showings in San Francisco city parks such as Union Square, Maiden Lane, Huntington Park, the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park - in front of the deYoung Art Museum, Washington Square in North Beach, Yerba Buena Gardens, and the Marina Green.
Exhibiting art in public parks allows the Guild artists to interact directly with the public about their artwork, explaining technical details, creative decisions, and the many other aspects of producing a painting or a sculpture.
The Artists Guild of San Francisco (AGSF) is artist-centered and artist-driven. Our main goal is the success of our members as artists and entrepreneurs. To this end the AGSF provides the organizational structure and professional guidelines to present and offer your art to the public in a consistent and sophisticated manner at "outdoor gallery" venues.
We only sell gallery quality original work and hand pulled prints (no giclees or photography).
If you want the support of fellow artists and to take your art career to an entirely new level, apply now.
