The Springfield Art Guild (SAG) is an organization that encourages artwork within the community. The guild organizes art shows, classes and programs. The guild has monthly meetings and publishes a newsletter.
One SAG member, James Cooper currently has his artwork on display at the Kingstowne Library and he answered a few questions about his involvement in the SAG:

Tell me a little bit about your artwork display at the Kingstowne Library. The current displays are six pieces of an 8-piece mural. The mural is 8-feet-wide by 16-feet-high. Each piece is individually titled and is from one of my original works titled "The Reach." They represent the spirituality for what people wish or pray. There is also a large oil painting of a rescue dog named ‘Milo.’
