ABOUT  US

Fort Wayne Artists Guild

The Fort Wayne Artists Guild was begun through the impetus of Jim McBride and 18 alumni of the Fort Wayne Art School. The first organizational meeting was on December 18, 1959 where they adopted the name “Fort Wayne Artists Guild”. Many of the early scrapbooks and records were ruined during the flood of 1986. The Guild participated in art fairs in the Fort Wayne area for many years.

The Fort Wayne Artists Guild is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization formed to promote interest in the fine arts, to further members’ artistic knowledge, and to encourage fellowship among members of the Guild and the arts community at large.

The Fort Wayne Artists Guild is a member of the Indiana Arts Commission and Arts United of Fort Wayne.

Visitors are welcome to attend a few meetings and are encouraged to be a part of the membership and enjoy the many benefits. Great friendships are formed when people gather around their shared love of art.
