About the Guild and Membership

The Guild was founded in 1947. Our goal is to increase the interest and appreciation of original art in our communities.  Our focus is on developing our member artists through demonstrations, courses, and workshops. We have approximately 325 members across the North Shore from Howe Sound to Deep Cove. 


We stage a number successful shows to present our art to the communities and to give our members an opportunity to sell their paintings.  Our two feature shows are:


  • Winter Art Sale -  a one-day event in November showing hundreds of beautiful paintings in North Vancouver.

  • Spring Art Show -  a one-day event in May showing about 400
    paintings at the West Vancouver Community Centre
