Associate Membership

Associate Members have an annual group show in February. This membership level requires no gallery sitting.

  • 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;

  • Low Gallery commission rate (Gallery receives 20% of the sale);

  • Gallery website listing with one image and a link to your personal website;

  • Notebook portfolio in the Gallery;

  • Publicity provided monthly through press, email blasts, and Facebook;

  • Participation in the Annual Associate Members Show after a year of membership; and

  • 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).

  • 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.
