Prospective Member Information

AGA’s membership year is from November 1st through October 31st. Annual dues are payable either in full on or before August 1st of the preceding year, or in three equal installments: on/or before August 1st, November 1st and March 1st. Current annual dues are $1,200, however, a rent increase effective November 2022 will necessitate a commensurate raise in our 2022-23 dues.  

Some of the Co-op Membership Requirements are:

  •   Live close enough to the Gallery that travel time is not an impediment to performing           all clerking or committee duties or replacing sold artwork.

  • Work one day a month in the gallery as the clerk.

  • Greet and interact with customers.

  • Become proficient at completing a variety of sales transactions and tasks.

  • Serve on at least two committees, which requires extra time each month beyond scheduled work days.

  • Rotate art work every three months.

  • Attend all meetings or provide a member proxy form when absent.

  • Computer skills, including emailing, word processing, and social media.

  • Have your own artist’s website and/or social media presence.

Please email any questions and the completed application, along with five digital images, no larger than 2MB, saved at 72dpi with the longest side no larger than 1920 pixels, of your current work to ashevillegalleryofart@gmail.com. The Jury Committee will contact you and give you instructions on the process of meeting you and viewing your work.

 

If accepted, you will need a Merchant Certificate of Registration, commonly called a Sales and Use Tax ID Registration. You can apply for this at the North Carolina Department of Revenue, 2800 Heart Drive, Asheville, NC 28806 (behind the outlet mall in the Ridgefield Business Park), phone 1-877-252-3052 or online at dor.state.nc.us.

 

Artists juried into the AGA are put on a waiting list to fill available member vacancies as they occur.  A non refundable fee of $100 is paid upon notification of acceptance to hold your place on the waiting list.  Your placement fee will be applied to the first membership dues installment when you are called to fill the vacancy.

 

AGA is a smoke-free and vape-free environment.
