Mountain Artists Guild
SINCE 1949, MOUNTAIN ARTISTS GUILD (MAG) has been supporting the Arts in Prescott and Yavapai County. Founding members included George Phippen. Currently with almost 300 members, MAG, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is committed to the emerging artist by offering educational programs including workshops by master artists, art for youth, youth camp, open studios (water color, acrylics, oils, mixed media and portraiture) and a gallery to feature our members’ artistic talents.
MAG is committed to educating youth, and has scholarships that are awarded annually to those entering or attending college and working on their fine arts degrees. We hold an annual Scholarship Auction with art and both silent and live auctions that include gifts from our members and local community businesses. Other programs support our seniors, who want to explore their creative talents in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
MAG holds two festivals annually in Prescott on the courthouse square. The festival features over 150 artists and 10 wineries in May and arts and crafts in August. In October, we sponsor Prescott Studio Tour, with over 40 artist’s studios and four art centers.
Primarily a volunteer organization, MAG welcomes all those interested in the arts to join, and invites everyone to attend our monthly 4th Friday events from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in our gallery. Come enjoy refreshments and meet our featured artist(s).
