Information Is Power
And the Guild delivers enough information to make you one of the most powerful (or, at least, best-informed) artists on your block.
The Guild eNews
Everything you need to know.
The Guild’s monthly enewsletter covers important and relevant issues of interest to artists. Members are invited to submit articles or request topics.

Know what’s going on in your backyard.
Most Regions publish their own online newsletters with information on local events and programs. Participate by mailing in interesting stories, reprints of important articles you’ve read, artwork, announcements and notices about your achievements.
Regional newsletters are entirely volunteer-produced, so we need you. Contact your Regional Administrator to obtain information or to volunteer.
