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!

From the President:

May’s meeting is Monday, May 20 at 7pm at The Arts Castle. Our speaker is one of our long-time members and past presidents, Kris Kolb. Kris is an artist of many talents and will share her one-of-a-kind jewelry made from authentic sea glass, sea pottery and sterling silver. She will also talk about her process of selling her jewelry.

The DAG pop up show at Gallery 22 is June 1 – 22 with the reception on Friday, June 7 from 6-8:30pm. Please drop off your pieces at Gallery 22 on Thursday, May 30 from 4-7. Make sure that your pieces are framed and ready to hang or if 3D, ready to display. We will need your name, title of piece, medium and price if it is for sale. These items will be on screens in the center of the gallery as we are sharing the space with the current exhibit. Pick up will be Monday, June 24th between 4-7. This is also the date of our June DAG meeting which will be at Gallery 22, so you can pick up your pieces while attending the meeting. If you are interested in participating in the DAG pop up show please contact me by May 24th. You can also sign up for the show at our May meeting at the Castle. You must be a paid member for the 2019 DAG year and we ask that you attend one meeting. We realize that with the change in the DAG meeting schedule this may be difficult. We are in need of assistance hanging this show. Please contact Diane Hodges, or myself if you are able help. The DAG pop up show is a great opportunity to share your work with the Delaware Community!
