Delaware Artists Guild Logo

The Delaware Artist’s Guild (DAG) is diverse group of over 50 artists and art enthusiasts. Founded in 1975, the DAG has continued a mission to provide information and encouragement to artists in the area. The DAG does this with monthly meetings which feature visiting artists, hosting educational workshops, travel opportunities to regional museums, and by sponsoring opportunities for members to exhibit their work.

We encourage visitors to check out our website, events, and exhibits. We also would like to extend the invitation for you to sit in on a meeting of your choice. You do not have to be a member to attend these functions. However, we are always looking for new members. The DAG welcomes beginners, professionals, business owners, or just fans of art to become apart of our guild. Please click on our membership page to learn more about the people that make up this amazing group, and what benefits you gain when you become a member. Thanks for visiting with us! Come back soon!

A Message From The President

Hello all,

Those members who attended the January meeting heard information regarding a DAG exhibit at the Art's Castle. To follow up, the Castle needs a count soon, of all members in good standing* who are going to participate. Please RSVP to me this week with your name and number of pieces you will enter so that it can be determined if there is enough artwork to have an exhibit. We can discuss this further at the meeting. Here are the details:

  • Must be a Member in Good Standing* (see page 2)
  • Up to 3 pieces per person

Deadlines are:

  • Artwork drop-off on 4/29 from 3-5pm.
  • Reception 5/5, From 3-5pm.
  • Pickup 6/23 from 3-4pm.

Again, please let me know this week by email or phone if you would like to enter your artwork so that I can forward the numbers to the Arts Castle.

Our speaker for this month is Nancy Vance. She will be speaking about her soft pastel paintings. She will have some finished paintings and will show examples of different techniques of under paintings to begin a pastel painting. Nancy will also have some of the brands of pastels and papers she uses. Please check out her work at one of her social media sites:
