Membership Fees (Annual)

Sculptor Member: $100.00

Sculptors approved by a vote of a majority of members in good standing of the Society at a general meeting. Sculptor Members are entitled to vote at meetings of the Society. (Works for exhibits are not juried when held by the Society. Where we submit to accredited galleries that host our exhibits, we are often required to have our works juried by those entities).

Associate Member: $50.00

Associate members need not be sculptors but be interested in sculpture and the arts and are welcome to join. Associate Members are welcome to participate in but not vote at meetings of the Society. An Associate Member may become a Board Director. Associate Members are invited to attend all exhibitions and attend such open studio visits that may be held by members. They may submit works for exhibitions juried by Sculptor Members of the Society.

Student member: $20.00

As part of our community outreach, the SSBC is now making student memberships available. Students can attend artist open studios as offered by the senior members, have the chance to network with professional sculptors with a range of skills and receive invitations to exhibitions. We are hoping to make more opportunities available to student members for exhibiting with the SSBC. Students are encouraged to volunteer some time and skills with the society. Any significant volunteering efforts made with the Society can be recognized with a letter if requested. Student members are welcome to attend and participate, but not vote, at meetings.

Business/Corporate: $200.00
