Membership at a Glance
Summit Art maintains a membership of over 100 artists. Artists must be juried in to become Summit Art members, with new members juried in quarterly. Annual dues are $50.00, pro-rated based on the jury date for new members.
All Summit Art sponsored events and activities take place solely through the volunteer efforts of our artist membership. Sharing time and talent is crucial to the functioning of our group and expected from all members.
Monthly membership meetings are held at Saint Luke’s East Hospital, on the second Monday of each month. Meetings are located in the Legacy Room on the 3rd floor and begin at 6:15 p.m. with networking and refreshments, followed at 6:30 with a guest-speaker program and a short business meeting. Prospective members are encouraged to attend a monthly meeting as a guest to learn more about Summit Art.
2020 Meeting Dates
If you are not accepted as a full-juried member, you may be offered an associate membership ($30 per year), solely at the discretion of Summit Art.
Display opportunities listed below are available to full juried members only. Currently Summit Art retains a 20% commission on art sales. Associate members are encouraged to take advantage of interaction with other member artists as well as classes and workshops available in order to develop their portfolio and reapply for full-juried membership at a later date. Associate members are encouraged to participate in all activities of Summit Art, except display opportunities.
