Board of Directors
The Art Guild of the Purple Isles (AGPI) is a non-profit 501(c)7 that has been promoting art in the Upper Keys for over 50 years. Our 100+ members include both Keys locals and snowbirds.
Our activities focus on themed members exhibitions in local galleries, and development and hosting of workshops by local and national artists. Members of the Board of Directors (all volunteers and active AGPI members) are integrally involved in the functioning of all aspects of the guild.
Our motto, “Explore. Educate. Exhibit”, says it all – we strive to continually explore creativity within our own and other’s art, educate the community about art by actively engaging with students in our local schools, and maintaining yearly exhibitions at galleries and museums in the Upper Keys.
We are truly fortunate in that we have a wonderful membership and an engaged and dedicated Board of Directors.
