Although the Guild cannot meet in person during Coronavirus times, we are looking for new opportunities to present art demonstrations, share suggestions of websites and/or classes you can enjoy virtually.
Dates and times of future programs may vary, but members will be advised via our Newsletters and website.
We welcome your thoughts for future art programs. Art brings us together!
You can check out our previous programs, for an idea of the range of activities offered.
Due to uncertainties around the state of the Omicron virus and the distance and complexity of safely getting to the DeYoung this month, the field trip planned for January 26th is cancelled.
Meanwhile, explore without leaving the comfort of your cozy chair and cup of coffee or tea! Just Google world-famous art galleries and see what comes up. Sure you can stay in California, or the USA, but why not see a Van Gogh’s Iris painting virtually at the J Paul Getty Museum, or antiquities in Cairo’s Egyptian Museum; or Winged Victory in the Louvre in Paris? You can see the treasures in the tombs in Cairo, the Crown Jewels in London, or check out an auction house like Sotheby’s. Do you collect something? Look for a museum that has your favorite collectible. Do you love shoes? Google the world-famous Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Canada. Love books and beautiful libraries? See the Book of Kells at Trinity College Don’t want to leave the Bay Area? How about the Sunnyvale Pez Pole (yes, the little plastic people that dispense candies). The possibilities for enjoying all kinds of art are only limited by your curiosity.
