The Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild was formed in 1977 by students of the printmaking department of the Fraser Valley College, with a vision of promoting and informing the public about printmaking, as well as, providing opportunities for its members to display their art work within the community.
Through the years, the Graphic Guild has maintained a reputation for quality art work, although has expanded from its printmaking origins to include painting, drawing and 3-dimensional work. We hold shows several times a year and have rotating monthly shows at the Grab a Java coffee shops in Mission and Abbotsford.
In the past, the Guild has conducted workshops in framing, photography, and demonstrations of various techniques of printmaking. In 1986, members began weekly drawing sessions open to the public.
The Central Fraser Valley Graphic Guild is unique in that there are no prerequisites for membership. In our 27th year, we have about 20-30 members of various artistic backgrounds and levels of expertise working in a diversity of mediums. We welcome new members!
