Welcome to the Havasu Art Guild Home Page!
The Havasu Art Guild is a non-profit organization founded in 1978 and located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The objective of the Art Guild is to encourage individual and community interest in the creative arts and crafts, and to develop the natural abilities of members in all areas of artistic endeavor. The Art Guild also welcomes members of the community to join and participate in the available programs - you do not need to be an artist to join the Guild! Membership forms can be downloaded from the forms page.
The Art Guild provides growth for the members through workshops, seminars, art shows, and exhibitions. Original works of art can be viewed in the online Member Art Gallery.

The Havasu Art Guild is a member of the Arizona Art Alliance.
The Havasu Art Guild is a member of a statewide art organization called the Arizona Art Alliance. The Arizona Art Alliance is a non-profit organization currently staffed by volunteers with a membership of over 30 Arizona-based art groups. The member groups represent over 4,000 visual artists who produce fine art in over a dozen mediums. The Arizona Art Alliance teams with our member organizations to provide show opportunities, art instruction, supplies, materials, and monetary donations to help develop and implement local art education and mentoring outreach programs. Thousands of volunteer hours are freely given by our members to support these programs. More programs have been added since our inception in 2000 that benefit more students of all ages and levels of ability; including veterans, special-needs individuals, seniors, and at-risk youth.
Currently, Arizona Art Alliance (AAA) is sponsoring a Fine Art Show in Tempe, AZ, December 5 - 14, 2014. All member artists are welcome to enter this show. Show entries are $20.00 per piece for juried artist and $30.00 per piece for non-juried artists. Minimum sales price $175.00. This is a change to the previous jury process. Upon acceptance into three AAA shows, non-juried artists will be awarded juried status. Check out the website at www.azartalliance.com for the Call to Artist information.
