The Artists Guild of San Francisco (AGSF) was founded in 1961 by urban artists who wanted to exhibit their work independently in outdoor sites across the city of San Francisco. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization run by artists. The Guild supports professional gallery-quality artists, allowing them to survive and thrive in San Francisco. We feature very low show fees, and a variety of inexpensive membership levels.
The Artists Guild pioneered and sponsors weekend art exhibitions in San Francisco city park destinations such as Union Square, Huntington Park, and the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park.
The Guild requires that the artist must be present when exhibiting, and only original paintings, sculpture and limited edition prints created and printed by the artist may be displayed. We do not allow crafts, photographs or digitized reproductions/photo-mechanical reproductions of art works.
Our mission is twofold. First, to bring art and artists into the community for public interaction and education; and second, to help artists develop the skills that will permit them to sustain themselves with art as their full-time career, by exihibiting outdoors to a diverse and sophisticated audience of art patrons, who often become clients.
