Join Artists On The Bluff

We welcome artists and artisans within a 100-mile radius of Lake Bluff, Illinois. Members are entitled to participate in our Lake Forest gallery exhibitions, attend Monthly Meetings and be a part of a group in which members assist one another and learn ways that they can be successful artistically and professionally if that is their interest. Membership benefits include reduced fees on our summer arts festival, a link on our website and posts on our Facebook page. Members can attend or conduct workshops and classes and participate in community events and exhibits throughout the year.


Most communications from our organization are electronic via personal emails and marketing emails. We request our members to access and fill out our online forms when it comes to registering for events and gathering information for other opportunities. It is recommended that members be comfortable communicating or learning to communicate this way. We have many members who are willing to assist less computer savvy colleagues.

Become a Member of Artists On The Bluff

We are an all volunteer community. A significant amount of a volunteer’s time is saved when organizing an event by utilizing online forms. However, when it comes to becoming a member, we request that you mail in a printed form along with your membership dues.

Members are encouraged to exhibit, attend monthly meetings, and socialize with fellow members. Members are also expected to volunteer. Please review the Membership Application form regarding current membership fee structure and annual cycle. This is also the form to print out and fill in to submit along with your membership dues.
