Anderson Valley Art Guild
About the Guild
The guild provides community for artists and artisans residing and working in
stunning Anderson Valley of rural Mendocino County.

Several Anderson Valley artists converged nearly 2 decades ago with the intent to
promote and increase awareness of the unique fine arts and artisan talents in the
area. They launched a valley-wide open studios and art tour which remains a
fixture and signature annual event in Anderson Valley. The Anderson Valley Art
Guild
organization was official in 2006, coordinating the art tour, exhibitions and
launching the Guild website.

GUILD  MEMBERS represent a wide spectrum of mediums, formats, and subjects:

  • Painting & Drawing - representational, figurative, landscape & abstract

A venturesome
self-guided tour of artist's studios and art settings - along alluvial terraces  of the  valley floor, through
unincorporated bucolic towns (Yorkville, Boonville, Philo, and  Navarro)  and into hills with spectacular vistas of the Navarro river
watershed.
The AVAG Open Studios  is an opportunity  to experience the intermingling of art and the inspiring Anderson Valley.
