Membership


Interested in the Gallery?  Are you an artist interested in membership, or an art lover?  We are always ready to discuss our art and to consider new members.

Benefits of Membership

Our members benefit from having a place to show their works as well as the synergy of our cooperative organization.  We teach one another and learn, as well as sharing the cost of presenting our art to the public in a way that makes it possible for all of us.  This arts community within the Pendleton district community gives the artists the possibility of having their work featured in a public reception or on our web pages, and makes marketing their work feasible instead of all but impossible.  And our arrangement is not exclusive; if you want to exhibit in other venues or sell your work directly, you can do that and many of us do.

Become an Artist Member

The documents here can help you decide whether our gallery is right for you.  The document Membership Process has some general information about membership and how to apply.  The Jury Guidelines document describes the kind of art we exhibit, and can help you decide whether your work is appropriate.  When you are ready, complete the Application for Membership, attach your artist statement and pictures of your works for review, and submit it to the co-op.

You might want to discuss this with current members before you begin the process.  Come by the gallery and learn more about us.
