GALLERY VISIT  If invited to jury, the prospective member will bring original works of art to a members’ meeting and will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the members present.

 

A majority yes vote is required of those in attendance for admission. The applicant will be notified of the membership’s decision by phone.

 

New members are accepted on a three-month trial basis, with the decision for permanent membership resting with the gallery and the applicant. The trial period is primarily intended to give new members a chance to see if the gallery and its responsibilities are compatible with their expectations. During this time, new members have the opportunity to show work in the members’ section of the gallery, participate in group shows, and plan for a featured show to be held subsequent to the trial period. 

 

 

 

If for some reason you can't fill out the online form, download the application, fill it out on the computer and then email it back to tagfrederick@gmail.comSubmit a hand written form only as a last resort! Thank you.
