Propeller Membership [December 10th Deadline]
Become part of one of Toronto's most dynamic artist collectives!
Propeller accepts artists for membership in all stages of their careers. We strive to have a well rounded cooperative composed of artists working in a wide range of media and approaches.
We offer two levels of membership: "Full Membership" and "Associate Membership".
Full Membership status guarantees members two-week rental per membership cycle (yearly).
|Full Membership||Associate Membership|
*A member can elect to have one 3-week exhibition every 18 months rather than an annual show.
A member can also purchase an additional week or a full gallery rental, assuming that space is available, and by paying the extra costs of rental at member’s rate. The member should inform the gallery of his/her intention at the time of choosing preferred time slots for exhibition, coinciding with opening of schedule. The programming committee will do its best to accommodate selection requests. Once the schedule is established, members can negotiate with other members if changes are needed and inform the scheduling committee.
** This means that an associate member can rent half of the gallery for two weeks at a cost of $1080 ($1440 minus annual membership paid of $360) + HST for a total of $1220.40.
*** The $120 monthly fee for full members amounts to $1440 a year to cover a 2-week rental. This implies that the cost of half-gallery rental per week is $720 + HST for members. The total amount of yearly membership ($1440 plus HST= $1626.20) could be paid upfront as a single payment or by monthly installments of $120 + HST ($135.60). These costs start May 1st, 2016, at the time of opening the 2017 schedule for booking.
All new members must agree to join for at least one year and make arrangements to submit contracts and appropriate fees at the time of acceptance, either by setting up direct monthly debit from the bank, by delivering at least 4 post-dated cheques to the gallery administrator, or by a one-time payment of the full amount.
We strongly encourage new members to join as full members to take advantage of all benefits. Please contact the gallery administrator Nathan Heuvingh firstname.lastname@example.org (416-504-7142) for more information or the chair of Membership Michelle Letarte, at email@example.com.
