The Whidbey Art Trail, now in its fourth year, has opened its membership application process for the 2014 season.
Membership offers many benefits, including a full page on the Whidbey Art Trail website with links to the artists’ websites, full-color brochure that will be placed on ferries, and in visitor centers, chambers of commerce, galleries and various businesses throughout the island, and distinctive roadside signage.
“The Whidbey Art Trail membership is a cost-effective way to market your art and studio,” said Mary Ellen O’Connor, a founding member of the Trail. “Our collaborative efforts have made the Trail a popular destination activity for visitors to Whidbey Island.”
This year, there are four categories of membership:
• Full members with studios open at least three days a week: $500 for a full page display in the brochure.
• By appointment only members
• Friends of the Art Trail Friends include lodging, restaurants, wineries, shops, non-profits and other businesses that benefit from visitors who come to Whidbey Island to enjoy the arts.
• Deadline to apply is April 1, 2014, but membership is first-come, first served.

As a program of the Whidbey Island Arts Council, the Whidbey Art Trail is a nonprofit arts organization committed to establishing an internationally recognized arts destination.
