Members of GVAL are notified of all upcoming events and have the opportunity to participate in the annual holiday show, as well as having opportunities to enter juried exhibitions, participate in critiques, outings, and become acquainted with other members of the Columbus arts community.
Members are also encouraged to volunteer and help manage GVAL. This helps to keep the membership fees affordable to its members. Our volunteers serve on the Board and help with workshops, socials and art exhibitions. Without volunteers, GVAL would not be able to offer the many opportunities for member artists to show their artwork and increase their exposure in the Columbus art market.
In addition to it's Base Membership, GVAL also offers a Premium Membership option available to member artists who want exposure to the commercial art world. With this membership, you will receive your own artist profile page on the GVAL website and have your work available to a commercial art agent. Your artist profile page will include your artist statement and bio, profile photo, up to 12 photos of your art work (including title, dimensions, and medium). In addition, your artist profile page will include a link to your website and contact information. Submit your information for your artist profile page on the link in the lower right hand corner, after you have filled out the Premium Membership Application.
Base Membership is only $25 annually or the Premium Membership is $40 annually!
