Important Dates


One of the things that most members appreciate about the Topeka Art Guild is the sense of camaraderie and the change to meet and spend time with fellow artists.

We can't always get together to discuss things. Many people don't want to travel at night.

But we CAN discuss things... online.

Try it!

Discuss the Survey


The discussion page is available only when a MEMBER is SIGNED IN!

It's one of the benefits of belonging.

Survey Results

Cynthia Stotlar-Hedberg sent an email to all members, with a very complete report of the survey results. Many thanks to all who participated. Survey results will also be available to members here on the website. You must be logged in to see them.

Member Meeting

Our November Members meeting speaker will be local artist Louis Copt. Member meetings are usually the fourth Tuesday of the month, so this month the date is November 28. Join us at 6:30 for refreshments, meet old friends or new ones; Louis will begin at 7pm. 

Louis Copt grew up on a farm in Emporia, Kansas. Flint Hills had a profound effect on him which translated into his passion for landscape painting of big skies and the spring fire burnings of the local prairie.  

To learn more about our guest speaker, see his website:

Artist of the Month

Artist of the Month for November is Cathy Brown.

Visit the gallery during our regular hours to view the exhibit.

We Recommend

One of the most fun aspects of being a member of the Topeka Art Guild is the sharing of information about ART.

It can be ANYTHING related to art.

I created this feature when I first started re-designing the TAG website back in May 2023. Two members have sent recommendations. I would love to see more from other members, but for now, I will put in a link to one of my favorite videos by Jill Poyerd.  It is titled "The Master's Mistakes," and all artists can take comfort in knowing that many of the masterpieces displayed in museums have flaws!

In the Classroom...and in the Gallery....

November 29: It's always fun to have a mix of returning artists and new artists.

November 15: A nice large group on the 15th... but I didn't get photos of every painter....

November 1: We had a very small group of five in the Acrylic Painting for Beginners. But we don't cancel the workshop, even if no one is signed up. We leave room for last-minute drop-ins because you don't always know if you will be able to find time to make art at the Topeka Art Guild! Feel free to drop in any day you see Acrylic Painting for Beginners on our calendar!

There was also quite a bit of activity during Thursday's Open Studio hours. In the classroom, ten artists were working, while other artists were busy in the gallery, hanging a new exhibit.
