we are not currently looking for new members!

There are currently 20 artist-members in the organization working in a variety of forms: painters, woodworking, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry-making, and graphic art to name a few.


As a member of the cooperative, board members need to be considerate of each other, be committed to the organizational goals, and are required to meet several obligations:

  • A minimum of 35 volunteer hours per year (more depending on square footage of studio) are required that are put towards maintenance of the arts center and participating in project events and programs.  

  • Pay monthly studio fees

  • Board meeting attendance

  • Fundraising efforts
