Who can join Open Arts?
To become a member you must – either live, or have lived on the Peninsula – or - have a close connection with the area. (eg: family – or some historical connection)
Membership is $15-00 a year for an individual and $25-00 for a Family.
There are additional fees for entry to our exhibitions – which at present are held twice yearly.
It is anticipated that this will shortly be expanded to at least one, if not two additional exhibitions.
We are also closely associated with the Otago Art Society, with many members being involved with both organisations. This – if belonging to both, gives artists a wider scope for their development and exposure in their Art or craft!
