The San Juan Islands Museum of Art’s Online Artists’ Registry is available for all San Juan County Visual Artists at http://www.sjima.org who are members of the Museum.
This Artists’ Registry provides a resource for the public, art connoisseurs and affiliations who wish to connect with artists living in our rich and varied artistic community in the San Juan Islands. The Artists’ Registry, located on the SJIMA website, gives each artist member a display page which includes the artist’s name, a short biography, contact information, an image of their artwork, as well as a link to their individual website, local gallery affiliations, and other websites where they are listed.
The online San Juan County Artists’ Registry provides excellent exposure for emerging and well-established artists in San Juan County and supplies connections to collectors and interested art lovers, both locally and beyond our shores. SJIMA has additional programs and opportunities ‘in the works’ for artists who belong to the Artists’ Registry as well as inclusion in the annual Artists’ Registry winter exhibit which gives all members of the Registry an opportunity to display their artwork in the San Juan Islands Museum of Art.
The SJIMA Artists’ Registry will also provide ongoing educational experiences especially designed for artists and will promote awareness of the arts on the Islands as destination points for art lovers and patrons. These activities fulfill the mission of the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, SJIMA. We hope to welcome many of our local artists on board as Artist Friends of the Museum through these efforts. We will all share in the growth of our area as it becomes a destination for the arts.
The SJIMA Artists’ Registry is a group of practicing artists supporting the arts through this group’s affiliation with the Museum. An annual $35 membership fee is requested for inclusion in the SJIMA Artists Registry. These funds support Registry Exhibits, programs and the website. All artists are also required to be Artist Members of the Museum. The annual Museum membership fee is $40.
Along with your completed application, which can be downloaded from the SJIMA website, please send a check in the amount of $75. This initial payment includes memberships for both the SJIMA Artists Registry and the Museum.
