Melrose Bay Art Gallery
is a co-op of artists, all of whom share a voice in making decisions and managing the business aspects of the gallery.
Membership in the gallery is restricted to about 14 artists because of limited space, and changes only when a current Member retires from active gallery membership. An artist who is interested in becoming a Member should be willing to work a monthly front desk shift, take on added responsibilities of administration, and pay monthly dues. Artists who find those criteria fit their expectations can apply by sending an email through this website expressing interest in Membership. Please include images of your work, with dates, a resume, and a statement.Participating Members
