Be An Artist Member

Join Sierra Arts Foundation’s member artist community for practical career support, exhibition opportunities, educational programs, and new ways of connecting to fellow artists and arts audiences.
Artist memberships are $35 per year and open to all artists living and working within 100 miles of Reno, Nevada. Reduced membership pricing is available for students and seniors (65+) for only $25 per year.

Membership benefits include:

  • Inclusion in Sierra Arts Foundation’s exclusive members-only art exhibitions
    As an artist member, you’ll be invited to participate in our members-only group exhibitions. We host several members-only exhibits a year at our Main Gallery in downtown Reno. The exhibits during 2021 are tentatively planned for March, July, and December.

     

  • Inclusion in Sierra Arts Foundation’s online artist directory
    No website? No problem! As an artist member, you’ll be able to create your own listing on our online artist directory. You can include your contact info and links to your social media accounts and website if you have one, along with an artist bio.

     

  • Member spotlights on our social media accounts

We want to help you reach new audiences on social media. As an artist member, we’ll highlight the passion you pour into your creations on our growing social media accounts throughout the year.

  • 70% commission on art sales from our gallery, online shop, or community art events
    We want to help you sell your work! As an artist member, you can list your artwork for sale on our website and participate in art sales promoted to the community.

     

  • Inclusion in calls-to-artists

Because Sierra Arts Foundation is connected with multiple entities, you’ll be the first to know about local and regional calls-to-artists, helping you secure more paying work.

  • Exclusive professional development training
    Our organization will occasionally make training and educational resources available to member artists to boost your profitability, advance your skill or enhance your ability to navigate the complexities of today’s art world.

     

  • Invitations to members-only events throughout the year

     

  • Complimentary Fiscal Agent
    Not all artists or art organizations are in a position to onboard finances in an advantageous way. As a 501(c)(3) organization, Sierra Arts Foundation can often act as a fiscal agent, lending a financial umbrella to those artists or entities who qualify for this type of need.

 

The Biggest Little City has proven it is willing to invest in the arts, and Sierra Arts Foundation works hard to ensure you make the most of that investment. We work daily to provide support for you: the artists who so diligently color, entertain and create all things worth celebrating. Those who join as member artists will have the efforts of a devoted and knowledgeable staff behind them.

We hope you’ll become a member artist today so we can celebrate your success together!
