“Enriching and Connecting our Island Community”

Welcome to the new “COMMUNITY” page that merges Public Art with a new “Creative Speak” column. 

We are growing and changing to best meet the art needs of the island with an expanded opportunity for art related news and updates. We listened to your comments and have divided the Community page into two sections to best connect with the interests of our viewers.

Creative Speak offers updated art news for the Guemes Island art world! Creative gatherings, fun happenings, inspirational opportunities, crazy events, and interesting people may be found here. We need your input to add content to this section! 

Send an Email to GuemesIslandArt@gmail.com with your suggestions.

Gather with your fellow Guemes Island Artists. Share artistic knowledge, skills, and techniques from the world of sketching, drawing or painting… Or just come to chat and get creative. This is the place to find those friendly gatherings so check back to see what is new!

Northwest Art Alliance is featuring Guemes Island Art from February through May of 2021, with a continued presence on their Small Community Focus page.

Every month GIA would like to offer a short art history lesson on a piece of Guemes art. We are excited that our collection of Public Art keeps growing and we have shifted to a monthly featured theme, color, or medium of public art… check back to enjoy the changes. Send your suggestions or public art photos to GuemesIslandArt@gmail.com
