Why a CAE Artist Membership?

You spoke and we listened! Our CAE Artist Membership offers loads of new benefits that were created specifically for you—the artist. For just $75 you can take advantage of all of the great benefits below. If you’re already a CAE member, contact Sara Miller at sara@evergreenarts.org to upgrade your membership.

  • FREE Weekly Open Studio on Mondays: Bring your sketchbook, canvas, or just your imagination. This is your opportunity to get inspired or create with other artists.
  • FREE Artists’ Forums: Opportunity to discuss ideas, collaborations, or just network with fellow artists. [2023 Dates (5-6:30 pm): June 28 & November 14]

ALL NEW Artist Membership Benefits (starting in  March 2023)

  • Coffee with the Curator. Do you need help with an artist bio or statement? Need advice on framing or about shows for which your work might be considered? Schedule a 30-minute meeting with me. Sometimes it takes another set of eyes and ears to switch up your perspective and open new doors to creativity.
  • Mention in the NEW feature of our weekly newsletter, Out About Town. If you have a solo show, have won an award, or something else newsworthy in your career, we’ll give you a shout-out in our weekly newsletter, which goes to more than 5,000 people.
  • Consideration to exhibit and sell your work at Parkside Café in Evergreen (Artwork rotates every two months)
  • Opportunity to participate in monthly critiques with other artists at CAE
