Applying for Membership
The Art District Gallery is an artist co-operative featuring the work of regional artists. We exhibit art that is fun, vibrant, colourful, unexpected, and contemporary. The Co-operative is prepared to accept original artwork from a wide range of disciplines. Applications will be evaluated on their artistic merit and feasibility for the exhibition space. Applications may be declined if the artwork is not sufficiently original, or overlaps significantly with the style or studio practice of the existing membership.
Members are expected to work together as a team and understand the importance of cooperative relationships. Each member must be available to staff the gallery, participate in openings and work on a committee. Artists should present themselves and their art in a professional manner, have a strong on-line presence and be social media savvy. Submitted art needs to be finished and ready to hang.
* provide a letter of introduction and outline why you want to join the ADG and how
you hope to contribute to the gallery
* provide a biography: one or two paragraphs that have to do with your experience or
training as an artist.
* provide an artist statement: one or two paragraphs about the body of work you are
presenting and the direction you anticipate your work is going.
* provide a link to an online portfolio, blog or website with at least 7 high resolution
images of your artwork.

Our membership committee will review your application and if your art is a good fit for
our gallery we will contact you for an interview. If we invite you to join our co-op gallery, we start off with a three month probationary period which gives you the opportunity to participate in two shows. We have a reception every six weeks when we showcase new art. At the present time, the gallery takes a 20% commission on sold art plus POS fees. A one time $100 non-refundable initiation fee plus monthly membership dues of $60 are required. We collect two months at a time. Full voting membership could be offered after the probationary period. Please Note: The Art District Gallery does not insure artwork while on their premises. It is the responsibility of the artist exhibiting to provide their own coverage.
Thank you for your interest in The Art District Gallery.
