You may want to forward our newsletter to your own email list if you are in the show.

Private Facebook Group for Members

This list is a vehicle for member to member communication. If you have a "call for artists" you want to share or a great deal on artists supplies, or a show at some other gallery, feel free to use this group. It is a private group for member artists only. You can request an invitation by logging into Facebook and going to this Member's Private Facebook Group. Or email Danja. Make sure to looks for and accept the invitation so you can be added to the group.

City Art Board e-mail List

There is City Art Board, a group of artists who volunteer extra time/energy to help run the gallery and make decisions about our future and the way we operate. If you are interested in becoming part of this group, please let a board member know and if there are openings in the board they will let you know what happens next. If you would just like to be more involved with the gallery and help out there are loads of volunteer opportunities where you can get involved without having to commit to a monthly board meeting. Listen for these opportunities at the monthly Pot Luck/Planning Meetings.

Submit Your Art for Our Website

Member artist have the option to have up to eight images in each member's page. Artists can also have profile pictures of themselves and an artist statement. There is also the option to have multiple links beyond a website and email address – such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Etsy, etc. To make use of this new feature, send images, statements, and links you wish posted HERE. Be sure to include the title of each piece and its medium. The width of artwork images submitted should be no less than 800 pixels (72 dpi and RGB format are recommended).

Submit Your Workshop Idea to the Gallery

Would you like to hold a workshop or similar event at the Gallery? We think that is great! First read the Guidelines for Holding a Workshop at the Gallery. Then write a proposal and send it to Ann Krilanovich for feedback, approval, and scheduling.

To get you started, here is a Sample Workshop Proposal written by one of our excellent artist members.

EMERGENCY Shift Sitter List

You are in charge of making sure your shift is filled. If you cannot work a shift you have signed up for, make sure to find another artist who will switch with you. However, sometimes emergencies do happen. It can be difficult to find another artist to cover for you in the midst of an emergency.

The EMERGENCY Shift Sitter List is a list of member artists who are willing to provide emergency shift coverage in exchange for financial compensation. We suggest $75 for a single shift. The arrangement and payment for emergency shift coverage should be handled entirely by the member needing shift coverage. As a courtesy, please notify the curator if emergency shift coverage arrangements have been made.

Can I hold an EVENT at City Art?

City Art member artists are encouraged to hold events at the gallery outside of normal gallery hours -- poetry readings, birthday

parties, artist receptions, receptions for organizations that you are involved with, etc. The holding of events does bring up certain

legal and liability issues; these EVENT GUIDELINES are designed to prevent problems that could threaten the legal or financial

viability of the gallery.
