The Artists Guild of Manatee mission is: To build a community where artists live and work while enhancing quality of life and creating a harmonious environment.
Thank you for your interest in being a member of the Artists Guild of Manatee! Our memberships run annually from April 1 to March 31. Registration is now open for the 2021/22 member year, which runs from April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
An online registration and payment process is now available. Online registration is encouraged and preferred! (If you choose not to register online, you can still register the old-fashioned way by printing the registration form at the bottom of this page and mailing a check to the address provided on the form.)
Please read the following before purchasing a membership.
- There are 2 parts to the registration process. Part one is payment. Use either of the two buttons below to pay for your membership. After you click on the Purchase Membership button, you will be redirected to a Paypal page, as we are using Paypal to process online payments. You can use an exisiting Paypal account for your payment, but it is not required. If you wish to pay with a debit or credit card, there is an option for that at the bottom of the Paypal page. Look for the button that says “Pay with Debit or Credit Card”
- The second part is filling out the registration form. Once you pay, you will be redirected to a registration form page. PLEASE be sure to fill out the registration form and submit it. Failure to do so will result in an incomplete registration and you will not be able to access the website. Thank you! (Note: If you were a Guild member in 2020/21, 2019/20 or 2018/19, then please mark the “Existing User” option button on the registration form.)
- If you are registering more than one person from a household or business, please log out of the website before attempting to register additional people. (You can find a logout link by clicking on your name or avatar in the top right corner of the screen.) Each member must have a unique username and email address.
