Description/Comments:

The Windward Artists Guild is a non-profit, volunteer, member guild, organized in 1960 by a group of Windward artists. Through education, collaboration, encouragement, and exhibitions, the Windward Artists Guild supports and promotes the production and appreciation of the visual arts. The Windward Artists Guild publishes a newsletter which is currently a quarterly effort.

Founded by Gini McCall, Rosalie Prussing, Lucille Cooper, and Betty Decker with the assistance of Juliette May Fraser and David Ash. There were 12 charter members. WAG Began with an exhibit at the Windward Theatre, auctioning art for the benefit of the Castle Memorial Hospital.

To this day, the charitable nature of the organization continues. Its main focus today is on funding arts education within the windward Oahu community. This year, three grants of $250 apiece were given to three art teachers within the public school system to help lessen the burden of supply costs to our classrooms. Additionally, a grant of $500 was given for the supplies to teach artistic expression as therapy at the Women's Correctional Facility in Waimanalo. It is the hope of WAG that these grants will help keep our community vibrant and passionate about art.

Additionally, WAG has held 1 -- 2 exhibits a year, usually one in spring with open application, and one in fall for members. These exhibits often have a special space set aside for children to display their works, again with the goal of stimulating the community to participate in the arts.
