Elected Artists

Elected Artist Membership is the goal toward which many of our artist members work. To qualify, the artist must prove acceptance into four Mystic Museum of Art juried shows within any twenty-four month period.

New Elected Artists are introduced at the Museum’s Annual Meeting.  Applications must be received by December 31, 2018 in order to qualify for the 2019 Annual Meeting.

Application must be mailed to the Museum.  Applications that are sent electronically will not be processed.

APPLY FOR ELECTED ARTIST MEMBERSHIP

Elected Artist Members Receive:

  • Opportunities throughout the year to exhibit and sell your work
  • A network of artists to collaborate and connect with
  • Increased promotion through Mystic Museum of Art’s e-blasts, newsletters, and website

*The Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, which holds its annual exhibit at the Mystic Museum of Art each spring, has a reciprocal agreement with Mystic Museum of Art whereby all works juried into the CAFA show are eligible for both CAFA and Mystic Museum of Art juried requirements. This agreement provides Mystic Museum of Art artists an additional opportunity each year to submit to a juried show, thus bringing the total number of juried shows per year to three.

It’s easy! To set up a new membership (or renew an existing membership) you may:

  • Join or renew online via credit card with our secure system
  • Call 860.536.7601
  • Drop by MMoA at 9 Water Street in downtown Mystic.
