Why Join TVA?
Triangle Visual Artists look forward to receiving applications for membership as we continue to be on the move! We have venues planned at various places around the triangle through out the year! Expect to find us somewhere each month; and members can choose which events they want to participate in. Over the past year you found us in Carrboro, Hillsborough, Burlington and Chapel Hill. We may reach out to wider areas to provide us with more coverage! And introduce others outside of this proximity to our art work.
Another important distinction about our group is that we are not a hierarchical structure; each artist has equal footing. So rather than a pyramid you might think of our structure as a wheel. With each member attached to one of the spokes. To simplify activities we do have three officials voted into office — a president, a secretary, and a treasurer — but we do not have a board that votes on how we should operate. Each member of our group has a say and vote on how we conduct our activities. We meet quarterly to share new ideas and directions, but most of our our voting will take place via email.
Membership dues will be $75 for a half year. (January to June and July to December) while the gallery commission is set at 10%. Everyone will be expected to put time and energy into various activities; many will be conducted on line for Public Relations, use of Social Media, and Venue planning. We also maintain a Mailchimp announcement service that individuals can subscribe to so find out about activities that each artist is participating in. We presently have over eight hundred subscribers and more sign up every day!
If you have any particular questions about the advantages of being a member contact our president at this email. Or if you are ready to apply to be a member, read on…
Note that artists selected in the initial jury will be invited for an interview and will be asked to bring in a few samples of finished works ready for display.
