Elmhurst Artists' Guild
The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild is a not-for-profit organization that runs the EAG Gallery, which features contemporary works of art in a variety of styles and media. In addition to four member shows each year, the guild hosts exhibitions of individual member’s artwork and invitational shows for significant Chicago area artists.
Founded in 1946 by 11 artists from the Elmhurst community, the mission of the Elmhurst Artists' Guild continues as "the charitable and not-for-profit functions of shows and exhibitions, workshops, lectures, classes and other similar activities which further the purpose of encouraging, promoting, advancing, and assisting art education and instruction, and the advancement of and development of the arts."
Membership in the guild is not limited to residents of Elmhurst, but is open to “any artist or lover of art in sympathy with and willing to work for the promotion of the objectives of the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild” with full participation “not to be denied to any person on account of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, or disability.”
