Art Guild of Pacifica has been around since 1958. In 1996 the organization 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 160+ 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!
