The Artists’ Guild of Anna Maria Island, a non-profit organization, was formed in 1989 with a goal to promote and support creative processes by bringing together all artists – visual and performing and writers – to share experiences, expertise and work together to develop and promote the artistic community on the island. They held the first weekend art festival on Anna Maria Island that fall.
In February 1990, The Artists’ Guild Gallery was opened in Holmes Beach to display the work of member artists. Today members continue to volunteer to work at the Gallery. During the winter season, demonstrations are presented and member artists are featured monthly in an art opening reception. The public is invited to attend all functions which are free.
The Artists’ Guild of Anna Maria Island, as part of its non-profit organization mission, continues to educate, promote and encourage artistic endeavors.
