The Whidbey Art Trail, now in its fourth year, has opened its membership application process for the 2014 season.
This year, there are four categories of membership:
· Full members with studios open at least three days a week: $500 for a full page display in the brochure
· By appointment only members: $300 for a half page display in the brochure
· Galleries: $300 for half page display, or $500 full page display
· Friends of the Art Trail: $175 for 1/4 page brochure ad, $300 for 1/2 page brochure ad. Friends include lodging, restaurants, wineries, shops, non-profits and other businesses that benefit from visitors who come to Whidbey Island to enjoy the arts
The deadline to apply is April 1, 2014, but membership acceptance is first-come, first served.
Membership offers many benefits, including a full page on the Whidbey Art Trail website with links to the artists’ websites; a full-color brochure that will be placed on ferries and in visitor centers, chambers of commerce, galleries and various businesses throughout the island; and distinctive roadside signage.
“The Whidbey Art Trail membership is a cost-effective way to market your art and studio,” said Mary Ellen O’Connor, a founding member of the Trail. “Our collaborative efforts have made the Trail a popular destination activity for visitors to Whidbey Island.”
