Artist Membership Program

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 ninth 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.

If you are currently enrolled in a college or graduate program, or are below the age of 25, check out our Student Artist Membership tier!
