The Nashville Artist Guild is a juried membership of professional visual artists from the Nashville, Tennessee area. Members are painters, sculptors, and mixed media artists working in a wide range of media. The Nashville Artist Guild was born in 1950 when two art teachers from Vanderbilt and Belmont brought together their students with other local artists and created a new artists’ organization. Thirty artists were accepted at that time and the new group was called the Nashville Artist Guild.

Because the original members were fine artists, many of whom served on the faculties of local universities, the rules established had high standards for the work of new applicants. Such well known visual artists as Puryear Mims, Walter Sharp, Joseph Van Sickle, Philip Perkins, Red Grooms, Louise LeQuire, Alan LeQuire, Bill Johnson, Greg Ridley, Betty Partee and many others became members.

The Guild continues to honor its commitment to excellence in art, to diversity, art education, and to raising public awareness of fine visual art. Current members work in oil, pastel, enamel, glass, encaustic, mixed media, watercolor, wood, marble, stone, photography and digital media. Many members are also educators and Guild exhibitions are an important part of our mission.
