Welcome to the
Lake Chapala Fine Artists Guild

Who Are We?

The Lake Chapala Fine Artists Guild is a relaunch of the original Lake Chapala Painting Guild established in 2011.
The Guild's goal is to promote fine art through collective exhibitions in the Lake Chapala area,
as an alternative to handicraft art markets and solo exhibitions.

This new group's focus has been expanded to include additional fine art mediums besides painting – but we still do not include crafts.

At our exhibitions you'll see only fine art by established, professional artists.

To ensure the quality of the art we exhibit, our art group is purposely kept small, our membership is by invitation only,
and new artists who want to join us are vetted for the quality of their work.

If you're looking for high-quality art for your home or business, please come to one of our exhibitions
and see what we're all about – you will not be disappointed!
Admission to our exhibitions is always free!

Our Guild believes in supporting the local Mexican community.
Since children are the next generation of local artists, we support the LCS Children's Art Program.
At each of our shows, we invite three young artists from this program to exhibit their art.
This gives them valuable experience, builds their confidence, and gives them exposure to art buyers.
