Basic Membership is $35/year (With your membership you will get the monthly newsletter and event notifications, 10% off in the art shop, and much more…) Memberships at $100 level receive free admission to over 800 galleries across the United States. Membership for OSU and Linn-Benton Students with a current student ID is $10/year. 

Tables and chairs and basic free-standing metal easels will be provided for the artists. Artists will need to provide their own free standing or tabletop easels if desired, and drawing or painting materials. Paint thinners with obnoxious fumes should not be used. Also, some art materials like charcoal are messy, so if your art is messy, come prepared with a drop cloth or be prepared to help sweep/damp mop spills after the session.
