Benefits of an Art for All Membership

For just $30 per year for an individual artist, you may take advantage of opportunities to show and sell your work – AFA does not take commissions! Plans include more art show booths for our members to showcase their work – we already had two booths at the Fox River Arts Ramble this summer!

We also hold member meetings throughout the year to share and and have supportive feedback on your work.


UPCOMING THIS MONTH

Member Art Critique / Show & Tell – one of our favorite reasons to gather – to show our stuff!

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17th, 6:30-8:00pm

DATE TO BE DETERMINED
