Exhibition space to show your artwork. Members can hang work in the Members Gallery in the Pickering Room each month (except group show months: Nov., Dec., Feb., April), and in all three gallery rooms for the Summer Show (June, July, August). Members can also enter the annual judged shows (Nov., Feb., April), and can be considered for a one-person show (eligible every 3 years). See our current Exhibition Schedule.
Docent opportunities. Members are eligible to docent at the Gallery. This is a great way to meet artists, art lovers, collectors, residents and visitors, and to educate others about art and our historic Gallery. Volunteering is the backbone of our organization. (If you have experience in retail sales, we need you in the Gift Shop.) See our DOCENTS page on this website!
Art classes. Affordable Art Classes are offered for youth members, Elementary, Junior High and High School age, as well as Workshops for Adults, taught by professional artists for a $5 to $15 donation per class.
Paint Outs. Artists’ Guild members meet at the Gallery for Paint Outs every Monday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., except the last week of the month, when the Paint Out is moved to Tuesday (the day following In/Out Day). Summer Paint Outs are held at Joyce Eckersall’s studio in Twentynine Palms (June-July-August).
Newsletter. A quarterly newsletter provides news about gallery events, upcoming art shows, receptions, classes, calls for artists, competitions, fund-raisers, volunteer opportunities, and Guild announcements.
Links. Member artists with art websites can receive a free link on our Art Links page.
Leadership. Members of at least one (1) year in good standing are eligible for nomination to the Board of Directors.
Affordability. Our reasonable membership dues start at $5 for Youth members, $25 for Individuals, and go to Life membership for $250, and all levels in between.
