The Artists' Guild of Anna Maria Island, a non profit organization, was formed in 1989 with late Genevieve Alban as its founding President. Her goal was to promote and support creative processes by bringing together all Artists - visual and performing and writers – to share experiences, expertise and work together to develop and promote the artistic community on the island. They held the first weekend art festival on Anna Maria Island that fall.

In February 1990 The Artists' Guild Gallery was opened in Holmes Beach to display the work of member artists. Today members continue to volunteer to work at the Gallery. In the winter season, demonstrations are presented and member Artists' are featured monthly in an Art Opening Reception. The public is invited to attend all functions which are free.


The Artists' Guild of Anna Maria Island, as part of its non profit organization mission, continues to educate, promote and encourage artistic endeavors through:
  • Bringing together people interested in all phases of the artistic field to learn through classes, demonstrations and lectures.
  • Recognizing talent and educational endeavor.
  • Fostering interest in the works of local artists.
  • Providing for the exchange of artistic ideas and information among artists.
  • Arranging exhibits, shows, and other means to further the purpose of local artists.
  • Providing a gallery to exhibit the work of local artists.
  • Encouraging the support of friends and patrons.
