Associate Membership

TAG is still taking applications for new associate members. But while we are without a physical gallery the benefits and responsibilities listed below have changed. Please contact our Member Coordinator Rhonda Smith at middlebridgestudio@gmail.com for more information and an application.

BENEFITS
  • This membership level requires no gallery sitting;

  • Associate Members have an annual group show in February;

  • Gallery representation;

  • Exhibit a framed piece of artwork five times per year in the Members’ area of the Gallery;

  • Display bin art (almost) every month;

  • Notebook portfolio in the Gallery;

  • Associate Members do not attend meetings, gallery sit, or perform committee work. Associates are non-voting members (except for some details of the Associate  Members’ Show).​​

 

 

RESPONSIBILITIES
  • Commitment. Each new Associate Member must commit to remain at least one year as an Associate Member;

  • Dues. Membership dues are $500 per year, payable annually or semi-annually. If an Associate Member fails to pay dues when they are owed, that Member’s work may not be hung until the month after payment is received;

  • Processing fee. When an Associate Member candidate is juried in, that new Member must pay a one-time $100 processing fee at the time the new Member pays his or her dues. This fee is non-refundable;

  • Cooperation. Work with the Associate Coordinator to maintain inventory of bin and wall (and 3-D, if applicable) pieces; and

  • Associate Members’ Show. Associate Members are responsible for, among other things, hanging work, labels, artist’s reception, publicity materials, de-installation. Full Members are available to assist in this process.
