Becoming a Red Tulip Member Artist

Criteria for Membership

To become a member of the Gallery, your work must be:

  • Hand-crafted
  • Original designs, not from kits, commercial patterns, or copies of others' work
  • Good quality in execution and materials

We specialize in fine craft, but do not currently accept consumables or food-based crafts.

If you are not yet a member of the Bucks Chapter or the PA Guild of Craftsmen, you will be required to join the PA Guild and Bucks Chapter upon acceptance into the gallery.  Dues for the Guild/Chapter combined are $75/year and have many additional benefits, including eligibility for Guild shows and workshops.

How To Apply

You may apply at any time; applicants are juried when received and new artists are added as of the first of each month.  

This application form is a 2-step process.  The first step establishes your account, login, and password with us.  In the second step, you input details about your work.  You will be asked in the second step to upload 5 - 7 images of your work, showing the full range of price-points and media you would like to have at the gallery.  You do not have to do both steps at the same time, but your application to the gallery is not complete until both steps are done.

Please read all Terms & Conditions carefully before applying; your application serves as your agreement to these contract terms if your work is accepted into the Gallery.  The T&Cs on that page at the time of your application will be in force throughout your contract with the Gallery; you will receive a copy of these via email when you are accepted to the gallery.  Questions about Terms & Conditions may be directed to info@redtulipcrafts.com.
