Associate Membership is available to all, whether an artist or supporter of the arts. Membership has advantages.
1. By becoming an Associate Member you are supporting the development of art and artists in our region and the mandate of Art Lab.
2. Associate Members will be able to exhibit their work in the Art Lab Community Gallery. Exhibitions will be curated. Members have the opportunity to exhibit in a one, two or three week exhibition per year. Exhibitions may be solo or group exhibitions, at the discretion of Art Lab. Members may offer their work for sale, with 20% commission to Art Lab. The member is not responsible to sit at the gallery during the show unless he/she wishes. Art Lab will handle all sales.

6. Members will have free admission to any After Hours Sessions and private functions.
7. Members will have the opportunity to sell their work, (art, craft or baked goods, preserves, etc) at a four day sale prior to Christmas. Space will be limited so reserving a spot early is recommended. There will be no charge for a table and no commission fee will be taken. All sales will be handled by Art Lab, so you won’t even have to mind your table during the four days.
