Our members have two options. Working and non-working. A working member pays a smaller percent of the sale. And of course non-working the percentage of sale price that goes to the co-op is greater. We pay a small monthly fee and a one time a year fee for our website.
In addition to sharing local arts in the community, our goal is to sell art. Therefore, to be successful at selling other members’ art, you get to learn about their work’s inspiration, processes and history. In doing so, you glean a lot of invaluable information about how other artists work successfully. Just as important, you will learn how potential customers respond to available art.
The TUSCArts Cooperative has an annual membership fee of $55. Additionally, artists pay a $25 per month gallery fee, and a 10% working or 20% non-working commission is collected for each art piece sold through the co-op gallery.
