Membership Information

Any person interested in art is eligible for membership in the Parkland Art League. In - person meetings normally take place at St. Anne's Episcopal Church, 6667 Lower Macungie Rd., Trexlertown, PA 18087 September through May with a social event/paint out in June. There are opportunities to socialize with members at our in person meetings and also at monthly artist receptions at our display venue at Stony Run Winery held on a Thursday evening from 4 - 7 pm each month, check the website for dates. 

Please check our website to determine if our monthly meeting will be "In Person" or "Virtual", due to pandemic related concerns.  Guests are welcome to come to all meetings. They can click a button on the home page to request a link for our ZOOM meetings at the normally scheduled time on the second Tuesday of the month January through June, and September through November at 7 pm to see the advertised demonstrator. 

Meetings usually have a short 25 minute business portion Via Zoom starting at 6:30 PM that includes announcements of interest to members followed by a demonstration by an accomplished Artist in their preferred medium. Members also have the opportunity to share their ideas, awards or events with others at this time as well. 

There is a lending library of instructional DVDs that are available for loan at the meetings. Members usually donate $5 to use the DVD. Two dollars are returned to the member when the video is returned.  The funds are then used to purchase additional DVDs for the Library. Members will contact the Coordinator via a button on the library page to arrange for pick and delivery of DVDs . Members can submit requests for new instructional DVD's to the coordinator. 

 

Members have the opportunity to sign up to exhibit their work at several display venues which are posted on the home page. Covid -19 has limited some  display venues but the coordinators are regularly in contact with the operators so that we may resume exhibiting art when it is agreeable to do so. Postings for artists needed to display work are found under the "Notices to Members" page on the website. The club provides insurance coverage for artwork at our venues with a $500 deductible in the event of a catastrophe.

Members can also participate in member only exhibitions as well as juried shows throughout the year. Upcoming events in 2022 include an All Member Exhibition at Penn State's Ron De Long Community Galley at the Center Valley Campus. A juried show at Stony Run Winery located at 150 Independent Rd.,  Breinigsville in August and a small works show in December. Also our 5th annual all member show, juried for prizes in December through January at Laura's Custom Framing and Fine Art shop located at 1328 Chestnut St. , Emmaus, PA .

( January 1 through December 31). Dues must be current for members to participate in all shows and exhibits. The Executive Committee reserves the right to extend memberships in some circumstances. 

Newsletters are emailed to members monthly January - June and September through November. Emails also are sent for announcements regarding events and show reminders.  

Members have the opportunity to display and sell artwork on our website. Work displayed in the gallery does not have to be for sale at the member's discretion.  If a member has a website, links to their website will be posted here for potential buyers to see more of their work. A commission is requested from the Parkland Art League for works sold on the website. This is to offset expenses from operations.
