Benefits of Membership

We have two types of members: artists and the people who love them. Artist members receive discounts on calls for art, promotional opportunities, complimentary portfolio reviews, and a highly engaged community. Art lovers get to bask in the glory of supporting a vital arts organization dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art. Everyone gets discounts from our membership sponsors, discounts on art purchases, invitations to special events, and our rocking newsletter.

Sponsor Highlight: A warm welcome our new sponsor, Small Pines Productions, who specialize in creating web based videos. Whether you need a promotional video for your social media account, a short feature to explain your business or a brief film to support your crowd funding campaign, Small Pine Productions will create it for you. "We understand that in today’s culture attention spans are short, so we promise to convincingly tell your story in 120 seconds or less." CoCA Members receive 10% off all services. Thank you, Small Pines, for your support of CoCA.
