ARSG was founded by a group of Arkansas Sculptors and was Chartered as a Not for Profit with the State of Arkansas in 2005. Although the guild’s primary mission is directed within Arkansas, membership is open to all sculptors residing in the states encompassed by the Mid America Arts Alliance, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
ARSG is working in cooperation with schools and universities to improve the training available for sculptors in the state and developing apprenticeship and mentoring programs with professional artists as well as working to develop adequate venues for showing, marketing and appreciation of sculpture.
ARSG hosts the Arkansas Sculpture Invitational, Arkansas’s oldest sculpture only show and sell. Last year the show was moved to Morrilton when ARSG, The Arts Council of Conway County and the City of Morrilton collaborated to secure a new location for the annual show and sell.
