Members of The Artists' Guild are divided into two groups: Associate Members & Signature Members.
To join The Artists’ Guild, you must pay for a Museum membership, plus the $25.00 Guild membership.
To join the Museum and the Guild, please click on the page for "How to Join". When you join the Guild, you automatically become an Associate Member.
After you join the Guild, you will receive a "Welcome Package" with detailed information about the Guild, how you can become involved and how to become a Signature Member. This package is e-mailed to those who provide an e-mail address and is mailed to those without. It is strongly advised that you provide an e-mail address (we use your e-mail only for Guild related purposes) as we rely upon e-mail communications and our website to keep our members informed.
Associate Members are artists and lovers of the arts who are members in good standing of the Museum and the Guild. Associate Members may enter open to all members juried Guild shows. All art entered into a Guild show must be original fine art and must be for sale. Associate Members may now show their art on the Guild's website. Associate Members may participate in The Artists' Guild Gallery with LIMITED benefits. A portion of all sales proceeds benefits the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
Associate Members who have been oriented and trained to staff the Artists' Guild Gallery may work shifts at the gallery. This is an excellent way to meet other Guild members and to make friends. There are many other jobs in the guild that are available for the volunteer who wants to help the Guild. These include committee chairpersons and election to the Board of Directors.
Signature Members are working and professional fine artists whose artwork is of a high caliber and have been juried into the Guild as Signature Members. Only Signature Members may enter shows at the Artists' Guild Gallery at 512 E. Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, FL., with full benenfits, enter the Guild's Biennial juried exhibition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, and participate in the Small Venues program. Signature Members also may display their art on the Guild's website and on the large screen TV in the gallery.
To become a Signature Member, your work must meet certain criteria and you must submit your work to be juried by an independent juror hired by the Guild.
Please see the detailed description under the heading "Attaining Signature Level".
After attaining Signature Level Status, you may elect to exhibition in our Artists' Guild Gallery. Participation in the Artists' Guild Gallery requires an annual gallery rental fee (which changes each year as our rent changes) and when you enter a show, you will be required to staff the Artists' Guild Gallery.
Members are expected to maintain continuous current membership status to enjoy membership priviledges. The Museum mails out a renewal notice well in advance of the renewal date. In addition, to those members who do not respond to the Museum's communication, the Guild sends a reminder e-mail.
Each member is responsible for renewing on time. Any member who does not renew their membership PRIOR to their renewal date (which is clearly indicated on each membership card) will be dropped from the Guild's roster. If that member subsequently rejoins the Museum and the Guild, they will start the membership process as an Associate Member. This means that former Signature Members will need to again submit their work for the Signature Member jurying program and Associate Members will have to restart the 90 day time clock prior to jurying. Please Do NOT let this happen to you. Please renew on time!
