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.
A jury process is held on the first Saturday of November
at the NBAL Gallery. This is for both new/current general members who want to
become a displaying member, as well as current displaying members who wish to
jury in another media. A non-refundable jury fee is required with each
application. Please refer to the Jury Process Information for more details,
times and requirements.
