The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is much more than a place for artists like you to come and express yourself. We’re your support team. We encourage you to explore your talents and push your limits. By offering you a place to meet, work and share, we help you bring the focus back to your art. By introducing you to other artists in Kelowna, we help create a community you can relate to and grow with.

Types of Membership

All memberships are annual.

Membership Benefits

Members get the exclusive opportunity to develop a solo or group show in the Members’ Gallery. You develop a show and we help you execute it. This is an incredible for opportunity for artists to get a show under their belt and on their CV, to test out new ideas and take creative risks, and to learn practical gallery skills like installation, documentation for your portfolio, and networking at your opening reception. Staff members are here to help as much or as little as you’d like.

Other benefits include:

  • The ability to show and sell your work in our annual RedDot Members’ Show and Sale
  • Reduced admission to Alternator ticketed events (workshops, performances, etc.)
  • One-on-one access to staff to solicit feedback on exhibition proposals and your art
  • Direct invitations to all Alternator events (openings, networking events, professional development opportunities, artist talks, musical/dance performances, discussion forums, screenings, etc.)
  • Voting privileges at our Annual General Meeting
  • After-hours access to facilities as needed (based on a formal application)
  • Ability to stand for election to the Board of Directors
  • The opportunity to become more involved and integrated in Kelowna’s arts community
  • The knowledge that you’re directly supporting your local artist-run centre!
