The Milton Artists’ Guild (MAG) is a nonprofit arts organization.
Our mission is to make art accessible to all people, promote artistic expression, and support the creative economy. We strive to make our communities more beautiful, bring people joy through art, and create a hub for all artists and aspiring artists (of all ages) to shop, gather, and create, in whatever form works best for them.
We believe in art and creativity in the broadest definition. Everyone is an artist and art is for all.
The Milton Artists’ Guild was established in 1988 by a community of artists in Milton, Vermont with a unifying passion for creativity. The group met in each other's living rooms and studios, doing whatever they could to stay connected and grounded in their creativity. Artists in the group had shows and exhibits all over town, supporting one another and providing support, collaboration, and comradery. With annual shows and membership consistently growing, the group decided it was time to evolve.
The Milton Artists' Guild officially gained non-profit status in 2011.
In 2017, the Guild opened its impressive 6,000+ square foot Gallery space, located at 199 US Route 7 South, in the plaza behind the Milton Post Office.
The Guild's art center showcases the work of over 150+ artist members and has become a community hub for the arts in Milton and beyond. The Art Center & Gallery features permanent and rotating exhibits, serves as a community meeting place, and has a well-supplied workshop space used for classes and workshops of all kinds, for all ages.
"This is an experience not to be missed." – Melinda Moulton
We are building a support network for artists to exhibit, learn, and evolve in their artwork or craft. We are bringing artists of all kinds together to exhibit and support each other as a creative community. We are putting Milton on the map as an art destination in Vermont and New England.
We are making the arts and creativity in all its forms more accessible to everyone in our community.
Art is for all.
We create opportunities for artists to learn, display and sell their artworks. We believe that art is a foundational part of one's education. We believe that everyone should have access to art. We believe that everyone should have access to, and ability to learn about, art. We believe in equal opportunities for established and aspiring artists alike to learn about and experience artwork. We believe in sustaining a healthy, safe and fun work environment for staff and volunteers alike. We believe that art should be sustainable and generate joy for all who make and experience it.
