Artists’ Charitable Fund

Consider donating artwork to the annual Aritsts’ Charitable Fund fundraiser art auction.  This is a Colorado based organization that assists American artists living anywhere in the United States by paying a portion of their medical/dental/eye-care bills. All of us may have unexpected medical bills some day and may need such assistance. In a way, we’re giving to ourselves. 

For further information, see: Contact the fund coordinator Judy Archibald at: to learn how to donate.

Membership Meetings Suspended

General membership meetings of the Sangres Art Guild have been suspended due to Spring fever and an impending spectacular, busy, fruitful summer creating art and displaying at the 3rd Street Gallery. Please check back later for a resumption notice. The Board of Directors will continue to meet monthly.
