North Coast Artists’ Guild


The North Coast Artists’ Guild was formed in 1997 as an affiliate of Gualala Arts to better serve working artists in the Mendocino and Sonoma coastal communities, from as far south as the Russian River to as far north as Little River.

Guild activities include:

The Studio Discovery Tour is our largest event. It is managed by the Guild and is held on two weekends beginning on Labor Day weekend. Thousands of color brochures are printed and distributed in July and August to promote this event. You can download a free copy of the brochure from the Guild’s website. You can request a paper copy from:

The Guild’s central objective is to assist local artists in improving their incomes and reputations. We are working to make our art community an art buying destination like the towns of Mendocino and Carmel.

Galleries & Studios Open to the Public:

In addition to the Annual Studio Discovery Tour, some artists open their studios to the public throughout the year. The holidays are sooner than you think. This is a fun way to shop for a unique gift or for a brilliant, individual object d’art for your home.
