                       THE PORTLAND FINE ARTS GUILD

The Portland Fine Arts Guild, a non-profit organization, has a membership of many individuals from all over the Portland Metro Area.    PFAG was inspired in 1969 and formally established in 1972. (see History page)  We presently meet and work at 12105 NE Prescott, Portland, 97220 at the Russellville Grange Hall in the Parkrose area of Portland.

PFAG and its members continue to enjoy making a contribution in this and other areas throughout the Portland Metro area.  Our work hangs in various business and community establishments on a rotating basis.  
 (see REVOLVING EXHIBITS)
We also participate in local shows and benefit events, as well as galleries.  Our own "Seasons of Color" art exhibit and sale takes place in the the spring of the year.

At our facility, a variety of art classes are offered to members and nonmembers - emerging artists - for very reasonable fees.  Our professional instructors travel from all over the greater Portland and Vanc, WA area to share their talent and teach excellent workshops.  We also hold membership competitions several times a year and ribbons are awarded.
Membership is open to any person/persons that are interested in the arts.
