Become A Member…
As a member of Charlotte Art League, you are part of one of the oldest volunteer arts organizations in the area. CAL takes great pride in its membership which is diverse in gender, age, nationalities and artistic styles.
CAL is a center where professional and emerging artists can grow as artists through networking, educational classes, workshops and programs. The CAL Gallery features changing monthly shows for our members to their exhibit work. CAL has studios and wall space for rent to provide members an affordable space to work, display and sell. Our partnership with the Manor Theatre gives our members an additional venue to exhibit and sell their work. Our members pay only a 25% commission to CAL for works sold at the gallery.
Artists are kept apprised of shows, events and opportunities throughout the region from CAL’s newsletter, website, in-house events board, and member “e-blasts.”
Part of CAL’s mission is to provide art experience and exposure to the community at large. This is accomplished through our participation in monthly gallery crawls; our open gallery; and our hosting “art events” throughout the year. Our Outreach Program provides classes for physically and intellectually challenged adults and disadvantaged youth. These classes are developed and taught by our members, who often find this to be a fulfilling and “life changing” experience.
CAL members are also encouraged to develop and teach their own classes and workshops, to earn fees paid by participants.
CAL has several membership levels. Choose the one most suitable for you and join us to enrich your art experience and that of the community.
…Or Be a Patron
If you’re like most of us, you’re reading this page because you’re seriously considering becoming a CAL supporter, but you’re asking yourself whether it’s really worth it. You want to know that your contribution is being put to good use, and that it’s making a difference.
But above all, you want to know “What’s in it for me?”
If you’re an artist, we’re here to help you become a better artist. Whether you’re a beginner, an emerging talent, or have been showing professionally for years, CAL offers classes, programs, and facilities to help you take your artistic vision to the next level.
If you’re new to the world of art, we’ll help you explore and develop your understanding and appreciation of visual creativity. No pretentious “art speak” here – we believe that art offers something for everyone, regardless of experience or education level.
And if you’re a long-time arts patron, your generosity will have a far-reaching impact on the cultural fabric of our community. We believe that a strong and dynamic arts community makes Charlotte a better place to live. Your support helps make that vision a reality.
