This new guild has been set up by a friend of mine, Robin Schoof, and she describes the goal as:
"The goal is to create a community of people who can gather monthly, chat, exchange ideas, find exhibition partners, eat yummy food, and make friends with similar interests. The name of the guild is the DUAG (Detroit Upcoming Artists Guild) and there are about 22 members thus far. I have created a forums page for everyone to begin chatting and getting to know one another- it's been great watching this take shape."
it's great to see someone taking initiative to get more involvement in the art community - I know there are a ton of other art organizations in the area, but the more the better I think. check out the forums...
