The Arlington Heights Art Guild (AHAG) is a nonproﬁt organization with the primary purpose of stimulating interest and participation in artwork of all kinds. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month from September to May, excluding December, at 7:15 p.m. at the Wheeling Township Community Service Center, 1616 North Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights, Illinois, 60004.
The Guild takes great pride in selecting some of the ﬁnest professional artists in the area to demonstrate their art form at our regularly scheduled meetings September through April. At the May meeting we have critiquing/peer judging of members’ artwork. And, we have a silent auction of donated art. In the Spring a monetary scholarship is awarded to 3 area high school students. Throughout the year, our member artists have the opportunity to display their artwork at local exhibitions.
In the summer we sponsor and organize a one-day art fair — Art in the Park. The Art Fair is open to member participation as well as to other area artists. (Guild members who have completed a full year of membership qualify for a reduced fee to enter the Art Fair.)
Membership dues are $20 for an individual and $25 for a couple. We encourage all members to actively participate by volunteering to perform service during the year’s activities.
