President's Message

The Holiday Show is up at Common Fence Point Community Hall. There are two more scheduled gallery openings; December 10 and 17, 4 to 6pm. I encourage everyone to take the time to view the art and consider purchasing a great lasting holiday gift.

The Guild is now affiliated with Smile.Amazon.  You can donate 5% of your purchases directly to the Guild at no extra cost to you!! All you need to do is Google Smile. Amazon and navigate to the sign up page. Put in your password, and the charity or non-profit of your choice- Portsmouth Arts Guild comes up and chose it.  We thank you in advance for considering  PAG as your non-profit donation.

The PAG board is looking for a grant writer. Grants obtained for the Guild are important for our continuing efforts to offer great classes and shows( and pay the rent!). If you should be interested please contact me at

‘Tis the season for giving and I hope the Guild we all enjoy is on your list.
Best wishes for the holidays!
