The regular membership fee is $25 per calendar year. January 1st is renewal time for all members.
* 2021 membership fee is $5.00 for members in good standing.
* 2021 membership fee is $25.00 for new or returning members (who forgot to renew for 2020).
However, the bank balance is extremely low, as we paid out our bursaries in 2020 as well as helped two local groups with art supplies, so if you can send more than the required $5.00, we will gladly accept all contributions.
All members must complete a new form as well as sending an e-transfer to the treasurer. When you complete the form, please ensure it is filled in completely, including the town in which you live as it is forgotten on many submitted forms. We again are encouraging all members to use e-transfer for all payments to ACP and to keep the security question and answer simple.
Please note that we have a new Treasurer, Danielle Barabé-Bussières.
- ACP members have the option to have a personal page on our Web Gallery. Please see the agreement related to this option at the bottom of this page.
- Members have the opportunity to show their art in several public locations around Carleton Place. If you are a new or renewing member, consider applying to show your art through the ACP Art-in-Public-Places program. (THIS HAS BEEN SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID BUT WILL RETURN!)

I will also send photos of my work, especially recent work (lots of photos are useful for the slideshow feature). This information may be sent via e-mail and be of sufficient size to be used for publicity. The information will be published in the Members Web Gallery on the Arts Carleton Place Website and therefore will be available to the public. I have copyright to images and materials provided to Arts Carleton Place. All of my work is my own original work.
I would like to exercise this option of having a presence on the Arts Carleton Place website. ”
