Why Join TVA?

Triangle Visual Artists has shows at various venues throughout the year, including Carrboro, Hillsborough, Burlington and Chapel Hill, and beyond.

Our group is not a hierarchical structure; 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 encourage each member to voice their opinion and vote on how we conduct our activities. We meet quarterly to discuss new venues and share ideas. Different members curate and organize the hanging of our show. And in preparation, there is frequent communication by email!

Membership requires a $75 payment for each half year (for the first half January to June and then again for July to December). This needs to be a check mailed to our Treasurer.

Public Relations using online sources is an important activity for us, since we are “virtual” and not at a permanent location. We regularly post to Facebook, Instagram and send out monthly Mailchimp annoucements (with over 800 subscribers). We are hoping that new members will have skills that can assist us in the use of online media, and work comfortably with various media — Word, Pages, Photoshop, or Indesign. Each member is expected to create labels for their work using our Word template.

If you have any particular questions about the advantages of being a member contact our president Trudy Thomson at  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.
