Create a dynamic, supportive environment for the arts to flourish in the Wet Mountain Valley.
The SANGRES ART GUILD promotes the arts in the community and supports the community through the arts; we create an exceptional arts-centered destination where everyone can create, participate and enjoy the scenic beauty of the Wet Mountain Valley. SAG is a catalyst in developing a healthy, dynamic, sustainable economic environment based on the arts.
SAG accepts all fine art formats and does not discriminate against any person based on race, religion, occupation, disability, sexual orientation, or gender expression.
