Who We Are

Elk Grove Artists (EGA) is a philanthropic organization of member artists from in and around the Elk Grove, California area. We are united in the common cause of showcasing the quality of fine art in the Elk Grove area as well as sponsoring the Art of Excellence show during the Annual Elk Grove Western Festival. We also sponsor a scholarship program for Elk Grove Regional Unified School District for High School students pursuing the study in the field of arts. EGA membership is open to all who would like to be involved in the arts, and/or those who would promote youth art functions. Elk Grove Artists endeavor to encourage art in the community by sponsoring shows that are set up for artists to promote and sell their work. We are a 501(c)3 tax deductible organization.

Elk Grove Artists, Inc. received the Arts Advocate of the Year Inaugural Award for dedication to raising public awareness and appreciation of the visual arts by consistently staging an arts presence, exhibits and demonstrations at community-wide events, organizing art exhibits and competitions, and hosting arts’ workshops.
