Welcome...
The Upstate Artists Guild is a not-for-profit volunteer organization, open to all, which promotes the appreciation, practice, and enjoyment of art. Our mission is to promote art education and artistic endeavors throughout the community; to maintain a space in which to meet for the purpose of exhibitions, lectures, and instruction; and to work with the community to stimulate an interest in the arts.

+ Upstate Artists Guild moving out of Gallery space @247 Lark Street
+ September 22nd, 2016 at 10:58 AM
It is with a heavy heart that we announce to our Upstate Artist Guild supporters that we will be moving out of the gallery space we have called home for 11 years.

247 Lark Street became our home on September 17th 2005 Lark Fest. Many renovations, gallons of paint, LED lighting, blood, sweat and tears have gone into the structure of the space. Over 500 artists have exhibited their work on our walls, on our floors and hanging from our ceiling. We have hosted over 1000 events.

Over the years, members have dug into our own pockets to pay rent and other expenses. This past year, attendance is down, membership is down and people just aren't volunteering or donating like they used to. We are low on funds and manpower, so we are temporarily giving up our gallery space after our October show while we re-organize. This move will keep the Upstate Artists Guild running, and we plan to continue hosting 1st Friday events and have a pop-up show (still themed and accepting submissions) for each 1st Friday starting with November. We will most likely be at the current gallery space (247 Lark Street) for the November 1st Friday. The shows will only be the one night or possibly the weekend depending on the circumstance. We still plan on hosting our events- just in different spaces until we find a new home. Our goal is to find something more affordable and perhaps with another organization by April 2017's 1st Friday.

Thank you for your past and continued support!
