About Us
Special Shows


New Braunfels Art League is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization with two kinds of memberships:

General Members are artists actively engaged in creating original art works, persons interested in the Visual Arts, or companies who are interested in supporting the Visual Arts. Annual dues must be current. Membership is open to all people and is not limited by race, creed, or ethnic group. General Members will receive current NBAL Newsletters, may attend and vote at General Meetings, and may participate in all Special Shows. If participating in a Special Show the General Member must schedule a workday as a docent for the month of the show.

Displaying Members are artists actively engaged in creating original art works, are current with their annual membership dues, have undergone the jury process and have been accepted, are working a total of 12 days yearly for NBAL, and have paid the annual displaying fee. Displaying Members should be aware that they are allotted 120” of display space and that NBAL will retain 25% of all gallery sales. When entering a NBAL Special Shows they are not limited to the media that they are approved (juried) for, but may submit any media they are working in.


Memberships run January 1 through December 31. Dues are payable beginning October 1 through December 31. Dues paid after December will exclude persons from the Yearbook, and a $10 late fee will be assessed beginning January 1.

Membership Dues are $35.00 per year for each General and Displaying Member; a discounted price of $30.00 will be given to those who choose to pay with CASH or CHECK. Renewal dues paid after December 31 require a $10.00 late fee, which would equal $45.00 or $40.00 for those paying with cash or check, for membership dues. There is an additional displaying fee of $30.00 per year for each Displaying Member.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, except December, at 2:00 PM in the Bower Classroom at NBAL. The public is always welcome to come meet some of our members, see our up-stairs classrooms and watch a local artist demonstrate their techniques for creating art. See our monthly NBAL Newsletter for details about the quest artist or any special events that are taking place.
