AFA Affiliation

The Elmhurst Artists' Guild is a Charter Member of the Alliance of Fine Art (AFA) since 1962. The AFA is a professional association of Chicago-land art leagues that offers a wider range of information, resources and other benefits to the EAG membership.

The EAM is one of twelve organizations that comprises the AFA; this includes:

The AFA’s mission is to promote fine art awareness and appreciation in our community, support art education in our schools, share resources and provide educational as well as exhibition opportunities for artists. This includes the fine art of painting, watercolor, collage, photography, pastels, colored pencil, drawings, sculptures, acrylics, mixed media, ink and oils, and more.

Each year, the EAG’s Student Scholarship winners are entered into the “AFA’s Student Scholarship” competition where they may win additional awards and the opportunity to display their artwork with other honored high school students from the region.

In addition, the annual  “Best of the Best” show, brings together award winning artwork at either the Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oakbrook, Illinois, or another venue. This event celebrates the efforts of the artists from all twelve leagues and the chance for recognition and monetary prizes awarded by an esteemed juror selected by the AFA Board of Directors.
