An annual Participation assessment is expected from all members of each artist group. The amount is $30 for the first group chosen plus $20 for each additional group selected. See Join Us for more information.

We will continue to work with the museum through 2022. Each group is expected to have an exhibition during the year curated by SLOMA in the newly refurbished Nybak Gallery. Both organizations are busy with their independent directions, but will jointly determine mutually beneficial programs.
The Artists Collective has been seeking a venue in which our artists can exhibit. The owner of SLO Gallery has admired the Collective and its gathering of professional artists. The Artists Collective has agreed to provide day to day management of SLO Gallery in exchange for exclusive access to it through 2023.
The Artists Collective is formed as Unincorporated Non-profit Association, not the more familiar 501c(3). This means that it is not a Membership organization and donations to it cannot be claimed as a tax deduction by the donor. A Membership organization, like a 501c(3), means that the members vote on policies. The only voting Members of our Collective are the individual artist group's Presidents, who can vote on Collective policies. When an artist signs up, they become a "member" of the artist group they choose, and they become a "participant" in the Collective. We use participant for the Collective to make it clear to the taxman that we understand the distinction as it could affect our non-profit status.
PAINTERS was added as the fourth artists group in the Collective in November 2021. The Painters Group (TPG) joined the Collective in February 2022, merging with and absorbing PAINTERS; the CCAC is now the umbrella organization for The Painters Group. If you are an active member of TPG, you'll be contacted with details about your new collaborative membership in the CCAC.
