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 with the intent for promoting and
increasing 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 for Anderson Valley. The Anderson Valley Art Guild was
conceived in 2006 to coordinate the art tour, exhibitions, and a website for the guild.
