Artists residing in Sebastian and nearby Florida communities have wonderful opportunities when joining the Sebastian River Art Club. Membership offers local artists a way to grow their art education, exhibit their talent and be inspired by others who share the love of art.
Please visit the TAB under CLASSES/WORKSHOPS for a listing of on-going classes and workshops. Included under the TAB are teacher information and class descriptions. Members can attend the classes for $15 a session. Non members can join the classes for $20 a session. Workshop fees vary and require registration and prepayment. On occasion, club members present free classes and workshops to club members only.
Under the ART AROUND TOWN committee, members display their art throughout Sebastian and the surrounding areas.
With membership comes the opportunity to participate in the ART BY THE RIVER exhibition program. Once the club Jury Committee has accepted your art, your art can be shown in the park.
These shows are held at Riverview Park in Sebastian several times a year.
Outside organizations contact the club with invitations for Sebastian River Art Club members to display in their private shows, events and jury events.
SRAC membership is based on 3 levels of dues and participation
Associate Membership dues are $60 a year. Under this level, no participation on a committee or SRAC Business Meeting attendance is required. Associate members can be part of SRAC art shows and other SRAC events after the member’s art has been juried by the SRAC Jury Committee. They also have to agree to follow SRAC By-Laws and show requirements.
As far back as 2002, the SRAC Individual Membership Application has included a section listing the various SRAC Committees. The applicant is required to select a committee and agree to participate on that committee as part of their membership. After a member's art work is juried, the member can display their art at any SRAC show or related event. The Individual Member must also attend at least three Business Meetings per year. Members have to agree to abide by SRAC By-Laws and exhibit requirements. The fee for this membership as of 2018, is $35 a year. If you choose not to participate and help, you can renew your membership as an Associate Member at $60.
Spousal Memberships have no requirements - they are the husband or wife of an Associate or Individual member. They can attend meetings if they choose. They cannot display any of their art at any SRAC Show or SRAC associated event. However, they can accompany their spouse at SRAC Shows and SRAC associated events. If they choose to help SRAC in any area, their help is very much appreciated by our members. The fee for this membership is $10 annually.
As of the SRAC September 2019 Business Meeting, we will begin our membership renewal for 2019. At this time you will be asked to sign up for a committee.
