With great sadness Canyon Lake Art Guild announces the the passing of their valued member and former president
William ("Bill") Waldron.

Bill brought joy to those of us who had the pleasure of interacting with him on a personal and professional level. A very accomplished photographer, his award- winning work is displayed in homes and businesses of patrons of fine art photography.

Guild members will remember Bill as a leader who brought
fresh ideas to our the group. He will be missed and remembered lovingly by his Canyon Lake Art Guild family.


Canyon Lake Art Guild, established in 1984, is a non-profit organization, a creative, ongoing presence in the community supporting local charities. Each year the Art Guild proudly awards an art scholarship to a graduating high school senior.

The Art Guild welcomes new members, no matter the level of the artist or genre, from novice to seasoned artist. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month. Visitors are always welcome.  

The members take pride in displaying their art in local businesses. Every three months the businesses are refurbished with new art from different members.

Art Guild members enjoy a range of activities, including but not limited to: demos, paint days, classes, workshops, and field trips. Collaboration with local schools, senior and youth activity centers and other community events are planned.
