Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild

Artists with a print making background working in a diversity of mediums

Our Vision

The Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild was formed in 1977 by students of the printmaking department of the Fraser Valley College, with a vision of promoting and informing the public about printmaking, as well as, providing opportunities for its members to display their art work within the community.   The Guild also established a scholarship fund at UCFV for fine arts students. 

Through the years, the Graphic Guild has maintained a reputation for quality art work, although it has expanded from its printmaking origins to include painting, drawing and 3-dimensional work.

Activities

In the past, the Guild has conducted workshops in framing, photography, and demonstrations of various techniques of printmaking.  In 1986, members began weekly drawing sessions open to the public.

 Currently, the Guild holds drop in open studio drawing sessions once a month.  Model fee per evening session is $5.00.
