Parker Artists Guild

Located in Parker, Colorado, The Parker Artists Guild is made up of a wide variety of artists living in and around the Douglas County and Denver Metro areas. We participate in a variety of Art Shows during the year, have Workshops for our members, and try to increase appreciation for arts of all styles.

General Member Meetings are held in Deep Space at 11020 S Pikes Peak Dr in downtown Parker, CO 80138, starting at 6:30PM on the third Wednesday of each month, unless otherwise posted.     Typically, meetings start with a 30 minute discussion of Guild business, followed by refreshments, and finally an interesting and informative program on a variety of topics.

Board Meetings are held in the conference room at Deep Space (address see above) starting at 6:30 PM on the second Tuesday of the month.  Members are always welcome to come present ideas.  Email your request to president@parkerartistsguild.com and we will schedule a time for you.
