The Guild of Boston Artists was founded in 1914 as a non-profit art organization and from the beginning has been New England's premier source for local artists working in the academic, realist tradition.
Over fifty of New England's top contemporary artists are currently represented by the gallery. Their mediums range from oils, bronze, acrylics, pastel, watercolors and pencil with genres that include traditional landscapes, cityscapes, florals, figurative and still-life. Along with an aggressive exhibition schedule, the Guild offers an array of educational programs that include classes, workshops, lectures and critiques.
