Art Depth is excited to introduce this new program which gives our dedicated artists, art collectors, friends and followers a chance to become more involved as well as to benefit from exclusive perks and private invitations. Becoming a member also gives you an opportunity to show support. Throughout Art Depth's first five years, event production and corresponding attendance continued to grow, yet remained free of charge. Moving forward, Art Depth's annual events will request donations in order to offset the costs of production. One of the benefits to becoming a member is that there will be free or discounted admission for Art Depth's annual events. Scroll down to find out about more member privileges...
Basic Member Privileges:
- Receive early "save-the-date" for Art Depth's Annual Interactive Art Party
As a member, you will receive a save-the-date as soon as party date(s) are finalized. For the public this information is shared 2-3 months out; for members, you'll be notified six months to a full year ahead of time.
- Attend Art Depth's Annual Event at a discounted rate, or at no-charge
At Annual events requiring donations, your name will be added to the guest list - allowing free admission; at events requiring payment, your ticket will be discounted by half or by your annual member fee (whichever is greater).
- At RSVP-ONLY Annual Events, Art Depth will hold your reservation
In the likelihood that Art Depth's Annual Event is RSVP-Only, Art Depth will hold your reservation and add you to the guest list, guaranteeing your space.
- At Annual Events with limited capacity, your spot will be held and RSVP date extended
At certain annual events, space is of a concern. At these events, RSVP is required by all guests including members. For these special events, your RSVP date will be extended.
- Option to influence decisions pertaining to Art Depth's Annual
In the past, the planning of Art Depth's Annual Event has been a closed process. As a member, you will have several opportunites to participate in the decision-making process - in effect allowing you to alter the outcome.
- Swag bags given at Annual Events will be saved for you (no matter how late you arrive!)
When swag-bags are given, you will be guaranteed yours, no matter how late you arrive! These gifts are non transferable and you must be in attendance in order to claim yours.

You may opt in to receive special discounts and freebies on behalf of our past and current sponsors. One opportunity will be given each season, and we will diligently oversee each offer for its relevance and benefits.
