SRAG was started in 1964 in Riggins, Idaho by three women who
loved to paint. They formed a club that eventually turned into the
art guild. From the humble beginnings of three members it has grown
to as many as fifty. The guild has been active in promoting two art
shows a year. The shows continue to this day. The spring show is
“members only” and held during White Bird Days, on the Saturday
before Father’s Day in June. The fall show dates are the second
weekend in October at the Salmon Rapids Lodge in Riggins. The fall
show is judged, with up to $1000 in prize money and open to all
adult artists. Members of the guild exhibit their art in the Sterling
Savings Bank and Cattleman’s Restaurant in Riggins.
SRAG strives to provide an opportunity for members to meet and
socialize with others who share an interest in the visual arts; to
encourage individuals of the community to express their artistic
abilities and to increase the level of awareness and appreciation of
