::: FALL 2023 JURY FOR MEMBERSHIP IS CLOSED ::: DO NOT SUBMIT THIS FORM-YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE PROCESSED AND YOUR FEE WILL NOT BE REFUNDED
Thank you for your interest in joining ACCI Gallery!
ACCI currently has over 100 artists represented in our gallery. We offer the opportunity for new artists to apply to the co-op with an annual jury process in the Spring and Fall. Our Membership Committee takes many factors into consideration when jurying new artists. The quality of technique, originality, continuity of style, and salability of the art is our highest priority in evaluating the art.As a cooperative gallery, we also put a high value on artists who are willing to be active members with skill sets that can contribute to the success of the gallery and its artists. Our application includes detailed questions about your availability, experience and skills. While none of these factors are required for membership, they will add value to your jury score.
ACCI is committed to representing the full spectrum of our Bay Area community. We encourage artists of color, LGBTQIA artists, young emerging artists and underrepresented artists to apply.
We currently have two categories of ACCI Artists - Active Members and Associates. As a cooperative, Active Members contribute their skills and hours in support of ACCI and our community. For the 2023-24 Fiscal Year:
Active Members: pay $195 annual fee, required to work 36 hours per year at/for the gallery, and receive 60% commission of their retail sales.
Associates: pay $195 annual fee, are not required to work at/for the gallery, and receive 50% commission of their retail sales.
New Members will pay $195 for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2023.
Active Members are shareholders of the cooperative and vote on changes to the organization; Associates are not shareholders and cannot vote on changes. This is subject to change on a yearly basis. For more information on ACCI Artist categories, CLICK HERE.
