To Prospective Artist Members:


Twenty-Two Gallery is an artist membership gallery.  We are offering 3 types of membership to a limited number of select artists.  Our program is less burdensome on artists and offers them a better selling environment than other “co-operative” galleries.  In our over 10 years of existence, Twenty-Two Gallery has built a reputation for showing some of the finest artwork in the area, and selling a substantial amount of that work.  The following are the 3 types of membership and the artist’s benefits & responsibilities:


Associate Membership –  A $50 per month member fee and a low 15% commission will apply.  No gallery sitting is required.  Associate Member Artist’s work is shown in 2 member group shows per year in January & July.  “Associate Members” are first-in-line to be considered for “Full Membership” status.


Full Membership -  A $100 per month member fee and a low 15% commission will apply.  Artists must gallery sit one day per month.   Full Membership Artist’s work is shown year round in the member area of the gallery & artist is offered a solo show every 1 1/2 to 2 years.


Non-Sitting Full Membership  -  A $150 per month member fee.  Same as “Full Membership” but no gallery sitting is required.
