Why Become a Member?
A fixture in the Arts District for over 30 years, the Tulsa Artists’ Coalition serves a unique role in the Tulsa art community, operating an independent gallery dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art by artists at all stages in their careers. The TAC Gallery is an attractive exhibition space, with a store front facing Reconciliation Way — truly in the heart of the Arts District. The intimate size of the space presents an ideal venue for a individual artist to exhibit.
As an independent non-profit organization, TAC is able to showcase challenging, thought provoking art that might not fit within the constraints of a traditional commercial gallery. We believe providing a venue for this art is the best way to support artists and promote the arts in our community. The TAC Gallery hosts approximately 11 individual artist exhibitions each year. Because of the support of our membership, TAC has been able to host these exhibitions at no cost to the exhibiting artists.
The Tulsa Artists’ Coalition is staffed entirely by volunteers, so 100% of our funding directly benefits artists through the TAC Gallery. Our primary means of support are memberships and The 5×5 Show and Sale.
We consider memberships to be our most important means of support. As a member of TAC, you are an instrumental part of our mission and have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to support contemporary art and artists in Tulsa. Also, as a member, you are eligible to submit works for our annual juried members’ show.
You do not have to be an artist to be a member of TAC. Many of our members are non-artists who want to see contemporary art thrive in Tulsa. Please help us continue to provide a home for contemporary art in Tulsa—become a member of TAC today!
