JOIN OR RENEW!  Our 2020/21 Membership Drive is now active!

We could not do what we do without our members! Families, artists, patrons and businesses from Newport and the surrounding area have all become members of the Library Arts Center. Your gift provides support that enables us to keep our class tuition costs low, provide many local artists opportunities to exhibit and sell their work, create special arts initiatives (like the Peeps Diorama Contest & creative placemaking community arts projects like the “Birds of a Feather” project), to operate the gallery without an admission fee, and to provide numerous exemplary performances at no cost to our patrons.

The Library Arts Center, like all non-profits, is feeling the financial pressures of COVID-19. If you are able to give membership at this time, please know that it would be appreciated more than ever to help sustain the Library Arts Center through this time of hardship.

We are also pleased to announce that we have an anonymous membership match for up to $5,000 for all funds raised in this campaign before July 15th!  Typically, our membership cycle runs fall to fall, and current memberships will be honored through this fall, but if you are able to become a member, or renew a little early, it would be most appreciated, and allow us to maximize your gifts through this generous matching donation.  

Members receive :

  • advance notice of exhibits, artists’ receptions, and classes
  • a 10% discount on all studio classes & workshops (for member and his/her immediate family)
  •  A discounted entry fee for artists for the annual Juried Regional Competition
  • Receipt of exhibition show cards and semi-annual newsletters
  • A lasting investment in all the Arts Center has to offer
