About Us

Welcome To The Peoria Art Guild!!

Our Mission

The mission of the Peoria Art Guild is to present a diverse array of multidisciplinary contemporary art.  We strive to inspire and educate all levels of art enthusiasts through exhibition, outreach and collaborative art initiatives.

Our Successes

For over 135 years, the Peoria Art Guild has been dedicated to “bringing art to the community and the community to art”.  As a visual arts leader, we take pride in our organization's efforts to educate young artists, showcase art diversity, exhibit multidisciplinary contemporary art and promote art throughout our community.

In 2012, we celebrated our 50th Anniversary of hosting the Peoria Fine Art Fair.  The Peoria Fine Art Fair is one of the largest visual arts events in Central Illinois. Our juried Art Fair features 150 local, national and international artists from 26 states and Canada. 

Our Team

We have big shoes to fill as we lead our community with innovative presentation of contemporary art. We are up for the challenge!!
