Welcome to the World of Gourds

The Show-Me Gourd Society (SMGS) is a non-profit organization that was established in 1997. We are the XI Chapter of the American Gourd society (AGS) which oversees more than 25 state chapters in the nation.  Our purpose is to support the arts by promoting the gourd art medium. We do this by encouraging youth and adults to learn about gourd art through our festival workshops, competition, and patch meetings. Our organization is made up of people who love to share their talents with gourds.


Show-Me Gourd Society Art Festival 

CANCELLED

 

Due to the continuing threat of Covid-19 that the Show-Me Gourd Society 2021 Art Festival has been cancelled. While we will miss the opportunity to reconnect with our gourd friends, the risk to the health of our members and friends is still too great. Please watch for information on our 2022 festival.
