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.
