SRAG was started in 1964 in Riggins, Idaho by three women who loved to paint. They formed a club that eventually turned into the art guild. From the humble beginnings of three members it has grown to as many as fifty. The guild has been active in promoting two art shows a year. The shows continue to this day. The spring show is “members only” and held during White Bird Days, on the Saturday before Father’s Day in June. The fall show dates are the second weekend in October at the Salmon Rapids Lodge in Riggins. The fall show is judged, with up to $1000 in prize money and open to all adult artists. Members of the guild exhibit their art in the Sterling Savings Bank and Cattleman’s Restaurant in Riggins.
On the 2nd Thursday of each month in White Bird, at the Gresham Studio, 10am (PT), a business meeting takes place and is followed by a workshop or activity.
Workshops, plein air paint-outs and classes with instructors are scheduled each month.
