The Shiawassee Artists’ Guild is a Mid-Michigan, organization. Membership is open to all active artists working in any medium. Its purpose is to be a meeting place for local artists to come together, to learn, and to gain support from old and new friendships. The SAG meets monthly (the third Tuesday of each month) at the Shiawassee Arts Center. Meetings take many forms – workshops, demonstrations, discussions, critiques, work-sessions and gallery tours. The meetings are very informal and are filled with inspiration and artistic camaraderie!
The Artists’ Guild shares a close association with SAC, where a themed exhibit of the group is featured every year highlighting each member’s area of artistic expertise. Guild members enter other exhibits as a group in galleries within Michigan. Individual artist guild members also exhibit in galleries, enter competitions and sell their work in various galleries throughout the state.
Another goal of the Shiawassee Artists’ Guild is to promote local art. This is not just to benefit local artists; it is also to encourage the people in the Owosso area to be aware of the many talented artists who live among them. Guild members hope the public will then be encouraged to join them, by participating in the artistic process and celebrating the artistic endeavor on a personal level.
We are an organization of artists and art lovers in the Shiawassee County area. We are a growing group who share a passion for creativity and a multitude of talents.
