Artist Membership Program

Please note: We are in the process of making some exciting changes to our Membership Program! During this time, we are temporarily suspending our admission of new members. We expect to begin reviewing Membership applications again in March of 2022.

Check back for more details, or get in touch with questions by emailing:

The Artist Membership Program at Gallery 263 is comprised of local, emerging artists who play an essential role in our mission. We are proud to support our Members with exhibition and professional development opportunities, meant to increase visibility, promote growth and generate conversation.

Currently in its eleventh year, our Artist Membership program is an extension of our growing network, and we are happy to review Membership applications on a rolling basis. By becoming an Artist Member, you will help Gallery 263 to grow and remain a Cambridge touchstone for years to come.
