History

The Visual Arts Group began in American Fork in the early 1940’s when a group of men and women, who loved to draw and paint, met and decided to work together and share their talents, knowledge and experiences. The group was very diligent in staying together over the years and was always anxious to help the community develop their talents and enjoy the visual arts.

What do the Visual Arts Cover?

Drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and sculpture; media arts including film, graphic communications, animation, and emerging technologies; architectural, environmental, and industrial arts such as urban, interior, product, and landscape design; folk arts; and works of art such as ceramics, fibers, jewelry, works in wood, paper, and other materials.

What we Offer the Community

The American Fork Visual Arts Group endeavors to bring these various art forms to the community through classes and exhibitions. We are continually striving to present art classes and events to help individuals grow in the use of a wide variety of mediums such as watercolor, oils, colored pencils and your basic graphite pencil. But we are also working to expand these classes to cover such subjects as calligraphy, illustration, set designing, and more.

Plus, we offer an open invitation for artists to come to Table Time, an open sharing art time at the American Fork Historic City Hall (31 N Church Street) every Tuesday at 11AM. This is simply a situation where you can come and sit around the table and while working on your own art project share with others about life and art. All are welcome to Table Time!

Artist Showcases

We are also involved in presenting a variety of venues where you can showcase your own art work. We host the Steel Days Art Show in the American Fork Library each year as part of American Fork City’s Steel Days celebration. This show is for both adult and youth artists. We host the Christmas in the Rotunda Art Show for Youth (1st through 6th grades) each year. And this year we are looking forward to presenting our first annual Arts and Music Festival here in American Fork early summer. Keep an eye open for this one!
