St. Albert Painters Guild


ABOUT SAPG

The St. Albert Painters’ Guild was incorporated under the Society Act in 1987 to meet the growing needs of the Visual Arts community. It is dedicated to assisting all artists, regardless of experience level.

We are a friendly and outgoing group of painters dedicated to:
  • Providing the opportunity for members to meet and exchange ideas,
  • encouraging and promoting cultural awareness of the Visual Arts,
  • providing a meeting place for the consideration of our interests and discussion of questions affecting artists and members,
  • encouraging members to continue to create visual artworks,
  • arranging workshops with guest artists and sponsoring exhibitions,
  • maintaining a library of art resources,
  • providing necessary equipment and furniture to carry out activities, and
  • fostering and stimulating creative growth and lending emotional support to our members.
