¨ We promote our artists and their work through Facebook and by providing clean and professional web presence within the ECCOTA website. Our website features an online shop, artist profile pages, classes, exhibits, events, wish lists, registries, and more.
¨ The gallery hours vary seasonally. We do not require our artists to work in the gallery– ECCOTA’s regular staff and interns covers all shifts.
¨ As a benefit to our members we offer a 20% discount on all purchases made between December 1 and December 31. This promotion encourages sales and serves as a thank you to our members and sponsors (remember you’re a member too- so don’t forget to stop in and shop your fellow artists).
¨ There is no fee to apply. Our artists pay a yearly minimum membership fee of just $12- $15 and an exhibitor fee of just $25.00 . These fees allow us to cover a small portion of the operating costs necessary to keep the gallery open.When We Jury
