The Whatcom Art Guild is a non-profit organization, open to all, dedicated to advancing and promoting the visual arts in Whatcom County. It is the oldest continually operating art group in the county.
Meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month at the Bellingham Public Library at 7:00 p.m. (except December and May). Anyone may attend free of charge. A brief business meeting is held followed by a program on some aspect of the visual arts.
The Guild sponsors two major fine art and/or craft shows annually. Also, spaces are available to members to show and sell their work in local businesses. The Guild sponsors workshops and other activities, including gallery visits, throughout the year. In addition, it cooperates with other art and craft organizations that are interested in promoting local artists and crafters.
As a community service, the Guild annually sponsors scholarships to WWU and WCC for aspiring art students. Younger artists are encouraged through Guild-organized donations of art materials for children at St. Joe's Hospital (St Joe's Kid's program).
