Membership

Everyone is welcome to JOIN and ENJOY what the Visual Arts Center offers. While membership dues help support our programs, membership is not required to take classes, participate in workshops or enter most exhibits. JOIN NOW!

As a nonprofit center for the visual arts we depend upon community support in the form of financial and in-kind donations.  When you become a member of the Visual Arts Center your dues help us support programs for you plus you will receive invitations to all our exhibits and special events, a monthly newsletter, weekly email updates on what's new and discounts on classes and in the Gift Shop on special occasions.  Patron Members also receive discounts on purchases made in the galleries and gift shop.
