founded in November, 2015 under the purview of The Orono Arts Council, we are a group of artists with diverse interests who have come together to exchange, encourage, share and develop together. Through workshops, demonstrations and outreach programs, we will become recognized as an important part of the West Metro that provides a connection between the artists and the community, culminating in our main event each your, the Long Lake Area Art Show in late fall.
The Westside Art Guild is open to all people with an interest in art who want to further develop their skills. We meet the first Monday of most months from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Orono Discovery Center, 5050 Independence St. in Maple Plain, Room 202.
Our mission is to facilitate dialogue and idea exchanges among our members; to provide greater opportunities for artists to share and sell their work; and to create long-lasting connections between the artists and the community.
