Artist Associates Program

About the Artist Associates Program

As a part of our mission to “engage, inspire, and educate artists,” The Kelly now offers the Artist Associates program for artists of all mediums and skill level.  We aim to provide these artists with art education and engagement within the local art community. 

This program is for paid Artist Associate Kelly members, thus it comes with additional benefits:

Dedicated Gallery Walls

We have dedicated wall space for our Artist Associates' artworks, which are displayed year-round, rotated quarterly, and are not limited to the current exhibition's theme. In our new building, these walls will be near the front of our building.

Your Art on Our Website

We advertise up to twenty-five (25) of your artworks on our website under "Art for Sale" and "Artists". We also promote our artists and their artworks on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Studio Day

We open our doors as a studio space for our Artist Associates on every fourth Monday from 11:00am - 3:00pm. Artist Associates may come together and paint/draw/create among their fellow artists.

Art Talk Evenings

Artist Associates have access to our once-a-quarter private art workshops, classes, and lectures with no entry fee. Art Talks are typically scheduled from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. Art Talks cover a topic requested from Artist Associates, from portrait proportions to new medium workshops.

Exhibiting Guidelines

  • Up to four artworks (16″ x 20″ or smaller) per artist are displayed on the Artist Associates wall at a time. This may be subject to increase once we move into the new building.
    • This four-artworks restriction does not apply to jewelry or other small 3D art, as these do not require wall space.
    • This restriction also does not apply to 5″x7″ or smaller pieces, and multiple small works will count as “one” larger work.
  • We welcome a variety of medium, style, or techniques.  For experimental artworks, please contact us so that we may see if we can accommodate your needs.
  • We rotate these pieces at least once a quarter to encourage art sales. We will also reach out to artists as their pieces sell to bring another to take its place.
  • Up to twenty-five (25) artworks per artist may be displayed on our website under: “Artists” and “Art for Sale.”
Thank you for your Interest!
