Membership to the Chestnut Group is open to any artist who is interested in working with us toward our mission. Membership is not juried. Learning opportunities abound, such as workshops held by seasoned and internationally-known artists. Perhaps the most valuable chances to learn come from the many Chestnut paint-outs hosted regularly. Paint-outs give artists permission to paint on scenic private property, or in remote areas that they might not otherwise have discovered. Chestnut membership also provides artists with several venues a year in which they can show and sell their paintings. Click this link to download an application form: Membership Application.
