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.
