We are people with a passion for art. Join us…share the passion!

About Rag

The Rockford Art Guild (RAG) is a supportive and encouraging group of people who have a strong passion for the arts. Each member has opportunities to improve, explore, and challenge themselves in ways they would not find elsewhere. Guild members work together to increase the appreciation of art in the Rockford area. Our goal is to provide education, growth, and show opportunities for our members, and for other artists in the community. Members work in a variety of media, including mosaic, beading, painting, pottery, sculpting, photography, woodworking, and more.

Become a Member

Membership in the Guild has a huge range of advantages. We travel together to the Milwaukee Museum of Art, to art shows in the area, and to local points of interest. This creates a camaraderie and networking amongst artists, with advantages that affect all areas of our lives. We receive information on how to get into shows, how to price our art, and how to present it. Well-known artist Tom Heflin does an annual critique of members’ artwork, providing everyone a chance to hear from a master how we can improve our work. Members also receive discounts on shows hosted by the Guild, as well as opportunities to teach. You are welcome to attend a meeting and see what we are all about!
