Information for Prospective Members
Artist dues are $50.00 per month, payable before the end of the prior month, quarterly or annually. Note that new members must pay their first and last month’s rent upon acceptance into the co-op. When a member leaves the co-op their last month’s rent is thereby covered. The gallery commission on all sales is currently 30%, with artists receiving 70% of the sale price. Our contract year runs from March 1 through the last day of February. New members are expected to complete the current year. At the end of that contract year, new members will either be invited to sign a 12-month contract or be asked to remove their work from the gallery.
