Membership in the Brickbottom Artists Association (BAA) is open to anyone with an active interest in art and the arts community in Somerville and the greater Boston area – artists and arts-supporters alike. An annual membership is just $50.

The BAA promotes its members and their work while fostering a community of art-minded peers, and providing members with opportunities to contribute to the cultural fabric of our broader community.

Member Benefits:

The BAA Board is actively working to add the existing list of member "perks":

  • Exhibition Opportunities: Resident and Affiliate Artists may participate in up to 3 annual membership exhibitions, as well as BAA sponsored events throughout the city.
  • Marketing Help: The BAA helps publicize members' shows and other public events through our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.
  • Open Studios: We encourage non-resident artists to participate in the Brickbottom Open Studios as Affiliate Artists, displaying their work in "host" lofts or in our well-trafficked common areas.
  • Resources: Members gain access to calls-for-entry and other opportunities shared with the BAA by other galleries and organizations.
  • Member pages: Artist members can maintain an member page on for added online visibility.
  • Discounts: Members receive a 10% discount on art purchased in the Brickbottom gallery, as well as discounts on purchases at Artist & Craftsman Supply in Cambridge, and Cambridge Reprographics.
  • Social & Cultural events: Our Brickbottom Speaks series, and occasional evening Salon events, video screenings, music and dance performances, lectures, slide presentations, etc, are open to BAA members, and most are free.
  • Networking and more: Membership in the BAA is a great way to meet fellow artists, learn about local opportunities, and to support the local arts community!
