The Phoenix Gallery is actively seeking new artist members.
2017 - New Membership Initiative
The Phoenix Gallery - an artist collective - has a long history of being a not-for-profit gallery that serves the artist community. With this in mind, the gallery is introducing a new option: Emerging Artist Shared Membership.This membership will be open to emerging artists. The membership can be shared by two to four artists who would either be proposed by the artists or selected by the gallery.
One active membership dues would be split between these artists. They would be considered full members. They would be included in all group exhibits and events. Their solo exhibition would take place after the second year of membership and the artists would share the gallery space. After this solo exhibition, the shared membership would expire and the artists would be invited to join the gallery as individual active members.
The Phoenix Gallery is an artist collective that supports the idea that a gallery serves the community by exhibiting art that is relevant. Giving emerging artists both a space and an opportunity to exhibit their work with affordable dues, enriches the community as well as the gallery itself.
Artists wishing to be considered for Gallery Membership must submit an application form, 10 or more jpeg images, link to artist's website, a resume and artist statement to be reviewed by the members. Applications can be submitted at any time.
Please note: If you are a professional artist, art teacher, etc. and are actively investing time and money to exhibit your art regardless of how much you are selling your artwork, you can deduct your gallery dues on your taxes. An accountant would have to advise you about what percentage of your professional expenses would be deductible depending on your income. It would be the individual artist's responsibility to work with their accountant to determine the amount.
The Associate Membership provides a group show for as many as three artists with wall work and three sculptors. The gallery space can be arranged so that the work of each artist can be exhibited as a small solo show. Members will be accepted through a review process. Applications must include at least 10 jpeg images of recent work or link to artist's website, a resume and an artist statement. There is no application fee and no initiation fee for Associate Membership.
