Procedure for Membership

If you wish to become a member of Art Whitsunday Inc, please contact the President or Sectretary to request a membership form. Membership forms are also available here: membership form.

Art Whitsunday began as a group of painters (Painting Paragons) in the early 1980's. After some restructuring in 1985 the developing multi-disciplined art group became known as Art Whitsunday Inc.

As a not-for-profit community group, Art Whitsunday membership has grown steadily and covers many art forms, techniques and approaches. The management meets monthly to enact business and the members meet regularly for a social meeting to interact on art topics and to encourage each other. Over the years, Art Whitsunday has hosted many workshops, art excursions, and regular annual exhibitions.  It is our goal as a group to encourage each other and professionally develop as artists, developing and maintaining a high standard of artistic presence in our community.

The executive of Art Whitsunday Inc. welcomes applications for new membership, however it is important that the following procedure for application be followed:

  1. Attend an Art Whitsunday Social meeting, these are held on the first Sunday of each month at the venue on the website, starting at 2pm. 
  2. Bring an example of your work for show and tell.Complete a membership form including two sponsors.
  3. Your membership request will be taken to an Executive Meeting. If granted, you would become a full member of Art Whitsunday with an ‘Entry level’ status for the Gallery.
  4. Attend the next Art Whitsunday Social meeting where the outcome of your membership will be given.
  5. If you wish to exhibit at the Gallery, complete the Gallery entry form with fees, bring artworks and labels to the following social meeting at 1pm, an hour prior to the meeting (this is temporary and will depend on procedures once new display area is available).
  6. Art Whitsunday membership is not just about the Gallery and selling your work.  Members are expected to participate and be a part of the group as a whole.  The running of the group, gallery, exhibitions and social activities takes many hours of preparation and planning.  Each member is expected to contribute as much as possible.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Executive.
