At the Milton Artists' Guild, we create an environment where anyone has the opportunity to create, learn about, and display art. We support artists across Vermont and beyond. The Milton Artists’ Guild was created with the mission of sharing their creative endeavors with other artists, promoting artistic expression and encouraging each member to value time spent creating.
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.
We are committed to making art accessible to all people through the support of artists throughout Vermont and Beyond. We are committed to supporting artists through exhibiting and educational opportunities for all people. We are committed to bringing art to the state of Vermont, created by artists of all kinds. We are committed to supporting the creative endeavors of our members and stimulating appreciation of the visual arts.
We will build a support network for artists to exhibit, learn and experience their artwork. We will bring artists together to exhibit together, and support each other across Vermont. We will put Milton on the map as an art hub of Vermont.
The Milton Artists’ Guild was established in 1988 with a mission of sharing their creative endeavors with other artists, promoting artistic expression and encouraging each member to value time spent creating. The MAG officially gained non-profit status in 2011. Enrollment has grown over the years and in 2019 the MAG’s membership has reached 200 members.
In 2017, the MAG opened its 6,270 square feet of retail space which is located at 199 US Route 7 South in the plaza behind the Milton Post Office. This art center and gallery showcases the work of over 100 MAG members and has become a hub for the arts in Milton and the region. The art center and gallery feature exhibits (permanent and rotating); a frame shop, gift shop and rental space for artists and community groups.
Visitors can visit the art center and gallery on Wednesdays through Saturdays between the hours of 10:00 am - 6:00 pm and Sundays 11:00 am - 3:00 pm. Visitors are encouraged to stop by regularly to see “artists in action” in the space and participate in ongoing art workshops, informational sessions and community activities.
