As a Guild, we are always interested in new members. The following is a list of requirements that you can consider and be prepared to meet.
You must live within 100 miles of the City of Bayfield.
Your art must be original and of professional quality.
A jury committee will privately vote on your submitted art using specific guidelines. You must submit at least three pieces of art from each medium you are entering. Submitted art must be totally finished, ready for display. A price sheet should accompany your art. The Guild takes a percentage of your sales.
As a working member, you will work approx. 12-15days each year. You will be expected to follow certain opening/closing procedures and be able to do normal physical activities (i.e. climb a short ladder, kneel, lift items, do basic cleaning, and pack boxes). You must also commit to attending the annual meeting and join one or more committees - Jury, Window, Marketing, etc.
As a member, you will build and prepare your own display, meeting the approval of the Board of Directors.
As a member, you will sign a contract with an “Exclusive Clause” stating that you will not sell your work at any other store within the city limits of Bayfield.
Non-working members are accepted on space available, and may attend the annual meeting.
