Become a Guild Artist Member
Formed in 1922 and incorporated in 1924, the Guild's history reaches back to the early 1900's. Originating from famed sculptor Solon Borglum's critique group, the Knockers Club, the Silvermine Guild of Artists has been a hub for some of the most talented artists in the Northeast. In that time, guild membership has grown to about 300 artist members, and has included such renowned artists as Abe Ajay, James Daugherty, Carlus Dyer, James Flora, Robert Kaupelis, Alice Neel, Gabor Peterdi, Charles Reiffel and honorary member Faith Ringgold.
Since its inception, guild membership has been a selective peer jurying process. As a result, the guild has held its membership to high standards with many members having work represented in permanent collections of some of the world's most prestigious museums, as well as prominent private and corporate collections.
