We invite you to join DAC’s thriving art collective!
Complete the online form on this page and become a member today.
As a member you will meet working artists in all media, join us for our shows and receptions, and sign up for daily art classes taught by nationally renowned experts in their fields. Membership in the Desert Art Center is open to all who appreciate the value of art and would like to support it here in the Coachella Valley.
Regular Members may exhibit artwork at our ‘Art Under the Eaves’ events and at specially designated shows. Regular Members are encouraged to submit their artwork to our Art Jury which meets once a year. Artists selected by the Jury are eligible to become Gallery members and may take part in the bi-monthly shows held in our spacious gallery.
Gallery members pay an additional membership fee and are invited to display their work in our bi-monthly Members Shows held in the Main Gallery. In turn for exhibiting in the Gallery, they are required to act as hosts in the gallery one day each month. The DAC takes a commission for all sales to support its operations and outreach programs. The balance goes directly to the artists.
Annual membership includes:
• Invitation to all gallery events including our Holiday Luncheon and Spring Reception.
• Your own online profile with bio and photo albums of your artwork on our website.
• Invitation to submit your artwork for jury to become a gallery member and display/sell your work in our gallery.
