Membership Dues

The link to pay for your dues are at the bottom of this letter! Please take some time to read through thoroughly!

The Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh annual membership dues of $45.00 are due by 12/31/2018.

We have changed the due date so our bookkeeping can be streamlined for the volunteers who

maintain it. Please click on the link and fill out the form and note any changes to your personal

information so our records can be updated.

You get many benefits from being a juried member of our guild. Among them are:

● ‘Auto in’ to ‘A Fair in the Park’ and other ‘pop up’ type shows and the opportunity to

participate (we are trying) in any of our juried events.

● Eligibility to participate in certain exhibitions at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.

● Monthly (we try) newsletter with information about the guild, upcoming opportunities for

artists and members’ news.

● Access to our PRIVATE facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/931842853531168/

● Annual ‘Spring membership meeting’ in March (will be announced)

● Opportunities for ‘meet-ups’ and social interaction with other artists (we are trying to do

more of these)

● A $15 discount on an Individual or Family Membership at the Pittsburgh Center for the

Arts.

● A $25 discount on an Artist Membership with the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council.

We also encourage our members to volunteer and help us put on the most respected art show in Pittsburgh (in our opinion!). We want to offer our heartfelt gratitude to the members whohelped us this year with a shout out here:
