Message from the desk of the  President
Hello Everyone,
I am enjoying and appreciating this opportunity to assist in continuing the legacy of The Guild that dates back to the 1940's when one of the two art groups that joined to create the Art Guild of Middletown first began.
Just as the Guild has changed in the years that have passed, it will continue to change thanks to each and every one of us. 
The sum is greater than its members of the Guild, both artists and supporters of the arts, we each have something we can add to this group to continue its legacy. 
Through the combined efforts of each member in his or her own way, whether it is by simply paying annual dues, attending meetings and demonstrations, by attending workshops and other Guild activities, by exhibiting works of art, by taking positions on the Board of Directors or by assisting with programs, we are all helping to keep the Guild alive and relevant in our lives.
I would however like to give a very special thanks to the members who take time out of their busy lives to help in the management of the Guild. Without their help the Guild would not be able to offer what it does for its members. 
The Art Guild of Middletown belongs to all of us. There are so many opportunities to volunteer and to be part of the activities.
We have a regular email updates,a website and a Facebook page to keep you up on changes as they take place.

We have two exhibitions yearly and opportunities to exhibit at many venues in the area.
We offer demonstrations of techniques in a variety of media, workshops, bus trips and other activities that are of interest to members and the public.
Email, postal mail or phone me with suggestions or critiques at any time. 
I look forward to seeing you or hearing from you and wish you the best in the coming year.
Eva Dykas
