Artist Memberships

The Hot Shops provides a unique, collaborative environment for artists to explore creativity through a variety of artistic and creative processes.

Each artist member who has a studio has the opportunity to create and display art for observation by the public and to educate the public about art and creativity. Member studios operate as a real-life classroom and living museum for creative arts. All artist members are encouraged to teach classes and workshops and to participate in Foundation-sponsored camps.

The Hot Studios make our arts organization a unique place of learning for the more challenging visual arts. 

The demonstrations and hands-on experiences in these studios are essential to the development of artists in these specific areas. These resources are rarely found outside of large universities, all of which are limited to the general public. We provide a pool of artists and educators to help develop other artists and members of the public. 

Artist member benefits include the following:

  • Access to the public areas of the studios during public hours.
  • Access to a common kitchen and eating area (projected completion in 2021) during public hours.
  • The opportunity to participate in curated exhibits featuring the work of member artists.
  • The opportunity to demonstrate and display art during open houses.
  • Website listing that includes bio, photo, current work
  • Plaque with your photo/bio for door
  • Coordinated promotion of educational programs

Artist memberships are $100 annually. There is currently a wait list to join. Lease agreements are separate and required through Guild By Association. Email Kim Sellmeyer for questions or to add your name.
