Join Maine Fiberarts!
Expand your connections, whether that is widening circulation of your artwork images and brochures, publishing information about your services, or simply keeping abreast of what’s current in Maine fiber. We invite fiber artists, fiber producers, collectors, enthusiasts, and friends to help us support Maine fiber by joining and building this organization.
With your support, we host gallery shows, make artist and workshop referrals, send folks off to visit studios and farms, post updated Bulletins, greet Gallery visitors from all over the country (and beyond), host workshops, encourage creativity, expand our website, offer slide talks, and dream up new programs like our Maine Fiber Resource Guide.
Membership Benefits for Each Level
PROFESSIONAL MEMBERS receive a link to our online Bulletins and have work represented through Maine Fiberarts. Professional members may send up to 20 high resolution digital images via CD. Send images of your artwork, shop or farm, or of you at work in your studio. Do not email images. Images are shown to curators and to art enthusiasts, and are used in curating solo and group exhibitions for Maine Fiberarts. Professional members may also send up to 200 copies of ONE printed piece (brochure, business card, or postcard) for display. Professional members receive discounts on workshops, may have notices posted in our Bulletins, may sell work through The Red Studio, and may run free classified ads in our online Maine Fiber Resource Guide, www.mainefiberresourceguide.com. $60 per year
SUPPORTING MEMBERS, SUSTAINING MEMBERS, ADVOCATES AND PATRONS receive all the benefits of Professional Members. They may also keep a portfolio book of images at our Gallery. We recommend Itoya-brand portfolio books that measure 10” x 13” for photos, resumé, studio shots, press clippings and artwork images. They may also keep up to 40 digital images on file with us. $100–$1000 per year
BULLETINS ONLY. Recipients receive emailed links to our online bulletins. We no longer send out printed copies of our newsletters or bulletins. If you do not have a computer or ipad available in your home or office, we hope you can make arrangements to visit a library and log in to our website to keep up with our fiber news and happenings. $35 per year
