Call for Artists!
We are looking for new artists to join the collective! If you live in Windsor/Essex County and are interested in becoming an active and engaged participant in our fully artist-run gallery on Ottawa Street in Walkerville, we invite you to apply for membership at WAC.
WAC membership involves much more than just displaying your artwork! As a part of the collective, WAC members are responsible for every aspect of the day-to-day operations, maintenance, and promotion of the gallery, and our success depends on each individual committing their time and talents to this venture. Whatever your own skills and interests may be - posting on social media, cleaning floors, bookkeeping, planning special events, doing repairs, writing grant proposals, etc. - there is a place for you to jump in, get involved, and be an integral part of our team.
A few things you need to know before applying:
You will have your own area for a monthly fee to display and sell your artwork. We have experienced artists on hand to guide you in presenting your artwork in a professional manner.
Studio and workshop space is available for members to use.
Each member must volunteer at least eight hours per month to help run the gallery.
Members are asked to attend once-monthly meetings (normally held on the first Monday evening of the month).
WAC has a number of committees, which members are encouraged to join and actively participate in.
Members are also encouraged to participate in special events throughout the year.
We ask that members commit to a minimum of one full year, so as to get a good idea of what works best to sell your artwork.
In order for you to join the collective, your application will need be considered by our Membership Committee and juried by our current Member Artists. Please complete and submit our online application form, including your artist bio, some details on what you would offer WAC as a collective member, and five images of your artwork representative of the pieces you expect to have on display in the gallery.
Ready to join and become a part of a vibrant artistic community? Don't wait! We look forward to welcoming new members and having fresh artwork at the gallery for everyone to enjoy.
