US+U is a member supported gallery, with a structure similar to that of a co-op. Members will pay a monthly fee that allows us to cover marketing and promotion, printing of exhibition programs, a web-designer to create artist profiles on our website, refreshments and catering for receptions and other basic operating expenses.
Artists can choose to be members show by show or commit to anywhere between a 2-12 month contract. This membership approach gives artists the flexibility to participate when it’s best for them and take time off when needed. Whats the break down? $25 per week divided by 4 days a week is $6.25 a day. - As one of our artists said to us- they spend more per day on coffee! It's an invest in yourself and in a community of like minded individuals .
Membership Fee: $100 per month (Particpation in one Exhibition is $100 x2 months= $200)
Graduate Student Rate: $50 per month with a valid student ID
