Membership Recurring Payments

Our membership system defaults to recurring payments when paid online through the website. This helps make sure you do not miss your membership renewal each year on your renewal date. Our system will securely remember your payment method but we can not see your credit card information. Only you, the member, can manage the credit card information. Three notifications will be sent within the weeks leading up to your membership renewal and you have the option to log in and turn off recurring payments. 

If you do not wish to have your membership automatically renew you can still pay online and send an email request to to have recurring payments disabled. 

If you choose to pay offline you can choose the "Invoice Me" instead of "Pay Online", then print the invoice and pay by mail or in person at the gallery. These instructions can be found in your membership invoice. 

When a member changes their membership level, the full price of the new membership term will be billed, and the next renewal date will be calculated based on new level settings and payment date. There is currently no pro-rating based on the previous membership level.

Memberships are tax deductible at the Patron level and above
