FAQs


Why would I want to?

Co-ops like Images give artists who are early in their careers a way to get exposure. Profit is important, but we value community and as a member you have access to a supportive community and a network of local artists.

What if I'm an established artist?

You may be an established artist, and membership in Images can be a way to supplement your sales and to interact with your collectors. Images provides an attractive, easily accessible space to have your work on display, plus your work can be highlighted in a Featured Artist exhibition.

What does the gallery expect from members?

Our success depends on engaged members who staff and manage the gallery. There are no paid employees to keep Images running. We count on members who show up and participate.  In addition to working in the gallery there are a variety of ways to be involved. Members may work on the shows, teach classes, assist in gallery management, or promote the gallery. But, we know not everyone has the opportunity or interest to participate in all these activities, or the ability to make a long term commitment. Read through our membership categories for more details.
