Interested in Joining an Artists' Guild?
Regina's art guilds have been long-time supporters of the AGR and involved members of our community! We are delighted to share opportunities to get involved with these engaging and supportive groups that are key members of the arts ecology within Saskatchewan.
A guild is a group of artists who meet on a regular basis to inspire and motivate one another. They share ideas and information and offer constructive criticism and encouragement. Guilds also provide learning and marketing opportunities for their members, with most working towards one to two group sales each year.
Regina has several active guilds that welcome new members: you can read more about each guild below and see what ones will suit what you are looking for. Please note that due to COVID-19, many guilds have cancelled exhibitions and that opportunities may have changed.
Aurora Art Guild
The Aurora Art Guild is a friendly group of approximately 30 men and women who enjoy painting in many different mediums. They come together twice a month on Mondays to learn, critique and nurture new techniques and provide each other with outside motivation to challenge greater creativity. They also facilitate workshops during the year, hold several weekend painting retreats and produce and participate in 2 sales shows per year, one in November and one in May.

Jewellery Artists Guild of Regina
The Jewellery Artists Guild of Regina (JAGoR) is a collaboration of local jewellery designers and artisans ranging from part time enthusiasts to dedicated full time professionals. Established in 2017, JAGoR is an incorporated non-profit whose goals include continuous learning, networking, developing, encouraging and promoting the work of our members and the value and uniqueness of handcrafted jewellery to the public.
Membership is open to jewellery artists who design and fabricate original handmade items and to metal and glasswork students who wish to advance their skills.
Last Mountain Artist Collective
Our goals are to:
be a registry for all serious visual artists creating fine arts or fine crafts, who live east of the Last Mountain Lake. Currently, our members come from Craven, north to Duval, and from the east shore of Last Mountain Lake to Earl Grey;
provide mutual support and strength to member artists, through meetings, events and educational opportunities;
improve our visibility to people and organizations who buy original Saskatchewan art and crafts;
enhance our community's understanding of, and appreciation for, the visual arts.
Because we wish to be inclusive rather than exclusive, we do not jury a prospective member for the quality, skill or content of his or her work. We welcome serious artists at all levels of experience -- from emerging to established -- who are engaged in the visual arts: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture (in, for example, stone, clay, or metal), fibre/textile arts, and such fine crafts as pottery, ceramics, stained glass and jewellery.
If you reside in the Last Mountain area, are creating fine artwork or fine crafts, and are interested in joining, please visit www.lastmountainartists.com or contact Catherine O'Byrne (306-725-3746) to find out more about how to participate.
