The Saxtons River Art Guild is now a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and encourage the advancement of the fine arts with about 80 members throughout the Monadnock region in New Hampshire and the Southern Connecticut River Valley area of Vermont. Their activities include: exhibit and sales venues, classes and workshops, open studio time September through May at the United Church of Bellows Falls and plein air gatherings June through August, luncheons with guest speakers and demonstrations, and trips to museums and galleries.
