Are you an artist interested in becoming a member of Alert Bay Artists Society? For only $10 a year you can take part in all theme shows and have a chance to also have a solo show ~ a great experience to add to your professional CV. ABAS keeps a 15-25% commission on sales.
AND YOU DON’T NEED TO BE AN ARTIST TO BE A MEMBER! You just need to care about art. Well, that’s not even necessary really. ABAS is a non profit with the aim of fostering the arts in Alert Bay. We are grateful to all our members, even those who are not contributing artists. The $10/year per member really helps cover costs and allows us to provide more opportunities for local artists to “Inspire ~ Aspire”. If you can’t afford the $10, but can afford time, we are also always on the look out for volunteers to sit shifts at the gallery. As a volunteer run organization, the more hands the lighter the load. Volunteers sit an average of one 4-hour shift a month. And in doing so, if you are a contributing artist, this gives you a 85% rather than 75% commission! Win-win!
