Art Guild of Pacifica has been around since 1958. In 1996 the guild found a permanent home at Sanchez Art Center in the Pacifica Center for the Arts.  Our members usually show artwork in the West Gallery, unless it’s during our Annual Members Show or Winter Art Faire when we take over the entire art center.  As an all volunteer organization, we depend on our 150+ members to support our exhibitions and events with their time and expertise.

New members are welcome! To join, just click the green “Become a Member” box at the top of this page. Hope to see you soon at an opening or gathering!

Next Artist Gathering

SAVE THE DATE –  Wed, Sept 13th, 7-9 pm

The ‘Juried’ are Out There

Juried shows can be a big step. Are you comfortable selecting and applying to juried shows? Or do you just stare at the lists of shows–not knowing how to choose? There are many options, especially now with the internet. Tonight, discussion topic will be juried shows, websites that list them, and suggestions to navigate the process.

Light refreshments will be served and, as always, bring anything you would like to share.

Time for Ideas

When the AGP Board meets in September, they’ll decide on the 4 themes for the group shows in the West Gallery for 2018. Have any great suggestions? Email them to
