Southern Oregon Guild of Artists & Artisans Memberships & Applications

There are two kinds of Guild Membership — Active Membership and Sustaining Membership. Sustaining Members provide critical financial support for the Guild’s Mission, its art programs, and its Gallery and Art Center. Active Members are artists, art students, or lovers of art who want to be part of a publicly visible, active community of artists — a community that both supports members’ professional growth and provides opportunities for creative expression to non-members as well.

How To Become An Active Member

Some of our members are arts supporters and advocates who volunteer their time and/or resources to support the Guild’s mission. Most of our members are practicing artists who are anywhere from early in their artistic life to seasoned professionals. We welcome all levels of artists and look forward to talking with you and learning of your work in the arts.

Being part of a Guild is a collegial experience with members benefitting one another and their organization. We would like to get to know you and have you get to know us, both as individuals and as an organization. To make sure that the Guild can meet your expectations and that you will want to help in building and maintaining the strength of the organization and its ability to fulfill its mission, we would like to meet with you before Membership Registration.

If you are interested in applying for Active membership in the Southern Oregon Guild of Artists and Artisans and have not yet met with a Guild Board member, contact us through Guild President, Joyce Abrams, to arrange a meeting to show your work and have your questions answered.

Or, you can pick up an application at the Guild Gallery and Art Center, learn about the Guild from the Gallery Host, and arrange to meet with a Board member.

Address: 24353 Redwood Highway, Kerby, Oregon.
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
