How to Join

Join the Haywood County Arts Council as an Artist Member​

The HCAC works to support artists in our region, and one of the ways is through our artist membership program. Artist members get first alerts on calls for work, an invitation to participate in an annual members-only gallery show, and an individual listing on our website. Any working artist may join as a member of the Haywood County Arts Council for $40 per year.  Artists between the age of 18 & 39 may join as a Young Innovator for $30.

Jury Process for Gallery Artists and Retail Artists

Acceptance into the Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery is a juried process. Not all artists are accepted on their first try, and sometimes only a portion of an artist’s work is accepted, but we always work with our artists to grow and advance their art. Be sure you are receiving our Artist Newsletter and look for information with regard to the jury process in July. The deadline for submission is the first Friday in September.
