BOARD MEMBERS


ADELANTE GALLERY IS



an artists run co-op gallery. We offer 3 level of membership based on location and engagement in gallery life.

Even though each member of the gallery pays their monthly dues, we are extremely concern with quality of the art that we display in our gallery as it represents all of us as community. Therefore all members of Adelante Gallery have to be accepted by existing members during our monthly meetings. If you are interested in applying to become Adelane Gallery Artists please fill the online application and submit 9 jpgs of you artwork for our review.  Please read carefully the guidelines of how to submit the images.

Please understand that quality of work is only one of the factors that we are considering. Time commitment, relevant experience in show curating, PR, marketing, sales, graphic design, accounting etc, anything that can help gallery grow and flourish is in our mutual interest and so we consider it as a very important factor.

A mutual respect of each other's art is also essential. When potential buyer come into the gallery, the member on duty has to refrain from pushing their own work over that of other members.

Scheduling staffing (gallery sittings) and cleaning is often harder than you might think, but we have been very successful in doing this because of the compatibility within the group.

Each new artist signs contracts with the Gallery, and is given a membership list as well as general gallery guidelines to follow. We have set a limit of 30 members at any one time. We do keep a waiting list of artists wanting to join the Co-op, so don’t be discouraged. You can apply at any time.

If an artist has an illness, or cannot fulfill their commitment to the gallery for a short period of time, a guest artist can be invited to fill their position for up to six months. We invite potential co-op artists to attend a monthly meeting as a form of introduction. As a guest artist they are not assessed the initiation fee but they are obliged to pay monthly dues in place of the artist they are replacing. If a Co-op member is to be gone longer than six months, they must resign and a permanent replacement is found.

If an artist falls behind in their dues, he/she risk dismissal.
