Membership is restricted to residents of Glengarry County. Current annual membership is $25, renewable each year on the anniversary of joining.
We’re particular about some things. A member’s work must be original – i.e. not a copy of other’s work. Using or closely imitating the works of another artist – literary, visual, musical, etc. – without authorization or crediting of the original artist is, well, unacceptable. Collective membership is open only to artists – no matter their media – not crafters.
We also care about the audience experience in our county. We have a limited audience so artists must show different work in every show. That’s right: every Collective show is unique. Work can be old or new, but never before exhibited at a Collective-organized show.
A candidate is considered a member once the Board has approved the membership and received full payment of membership fees.
