Dear Prospective Member:

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member in the Guild. We welcome artists who are currently creating

Members in the gallery are asked to agree to the following:

1.  Be active in producing quality art and capable of contributing new art work to the gallery on a regular basis.

2.  Be willing to open/close the gallery and conduct retail transactions for 18 shifts per year, and serve in a
special area of responsibility. Also, freely participate in special functions, such as serving as a joint host for
gallery art walk and attending other functions hosted by the gallery.

3.  Attend and actively participate in all general membership meetings.

4.  Be able to handle monetary transactions such as cash and credit card sales. Follow all established policies
and procedures from the Board of Directors.

grounds for membership termination. In addition members pay 25% commission on all sales of their work.

7.  Understand that the gallery does not carry damage or loss insurance for artist’s work, and therefore is not
liable for any damage or loss to your work.

8.  Artists will be responsible for State and Federal Income taxes and other areas of personal financial liability.

9.  Act as an ambassador representing the North Beach Artist Guild by promoting inclusion in community
events, sales of your artwork and sales of the artwork of other members. Treat all artists and community
members with respect.

10. Maintain current Annual Washington State ($20) and City of Ocean Shores ($35) business licenses.

Steps for applying for membership:

1. Contact the Membership Team member listed below for more information and to make an appointment to
have your artwork reviewed by the Jury-Display Team.

You will be asked to make a short presentation to team members about your work.    After your presentation,
members will ask questions and view the artwork.
