Also it provides the opportunity to participate in a gallery with a 25 year plus history, and in a nonprofit organization eligible for grants to serve the Denver and Santa Fe Art District communities.

These are some of the benefits of Core Membership

1. Becoming a part of a community and all that the word signifies, including the inspiration, friendship and support of active and committed artists, as well as the networking and shared knowledge necessary for discovering opportunities to advance one’s art and career.
2. The opportunity to participate in a gallery with a 25 year plus history, and in a nonprofit organization eligible for grants to serve the Denver and Santa Fe communities. 3. The use of 1/2 of the main galleries for a three-week period for each year of membership (12 months). This means that the member along with the one other member decide how to use, display and promote their own show. The gallery must be open to the public during the posted times. (Thursdays 12-6pm, Friday 12-9pm, Saturday 12-6, and Sunday 1-4pm) The artists exhibiting are responsible for hanging their show, taking down their show in a timely fashion and repairing walls prior to the next show. These artists are also responsible for refreshments on their opening night/s, supplying information about the show to the publicity chairman and cleaning the gallery before, during and after their show.
4. Participation in group shows, with all or part of the membership each year.
5. Free entry into open-entry shows. Note: CORE members are subject to the same jurying as non-members.
6. Exposure of your art on our website and links to your own site.
