Members will be delighted to know that since the refurbishment of the Gallery and the grand opening events of 2014, membership numbers have climbed steadily from just over 300 to a respectable 434 at the time of writing. Some 131 Artist and Architect members are supported by 303 lay members, both Town and Country.
In anticipation of 2017 when we will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the founding of the Glasgow Art Club, Council would welcome your support in boosting membership by 150 over the next few months.
We appreciate that this constitutes an ambitious target but Council feels that our Club has the capacity to foster a growing interest in the Arts in Glasgow, especially ahead of 2018 and the anniversary of the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
To help focus our efforts and as an incentive, Council has decided to offer members a reduction of 10% in the 2016/17 annual subscription for the successful nomination of a new member. In addition, a new member, introduced by an existing Club member will also receive a 10% reduction in their first year subscription*.
We do hope that you can help Council with this initiative.
