Galveston Art League juried competitions are open to members and non-members. Members receive a
discount off their entry fees, however. League membership fees are tax-deductible; to see a list of
membership levels and fees, visit www.GalvestonArtLeague.com and click on the “Get Involved” tab.
The 108-year-old Art League was founded with the objective of advocating on behalf of art education and
visual arts Galveston County and the larger region. Galveston Art League has never had a salaried
employee on its staff; volunteers handled all functions, from ringing up sales in the gallery to hanging
monthly exhibits to governing the organization and fundraising. The league relies on membership fees,
gallery sales, donations, and a gala (coming up in September) for operational funding.
