  • Members have a chance to sell their art work (commissions vary depending on the type of membership).
  • Members receive a monthly newsletter, the Art Focus, that announces upcoming shows (inside & outside), gallery functions & activities, opportunities for shows held by other organizations, resource members and their services, and information about other shows our members are in.
  • Each member can have their own individual artist gallery on the website which includes an artist statement/bio, maximum of ten (10) images of artwork displayed in an interactive gallery, and each  gallery page has a link to the artist’s website and an email link for inquiries to be sent.
