The mission of Corrales Society of Artists (CSA) is to foster a vibrant and distinctive artistic community in Corrales and New Mexico by promoting, exhibiting, and providing venues for selling the work of emerging and established artists through art exhibitions and educational programming, and by serving as a resource to all who seek to expand their appreciation, knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of art.


Membership in CSA is open to fine artists and crafts persons meeting the criteria below. All work for display in organization events must be original work/art by the exhibiting member artist. All media is accepted except the following media ARE NOT allowed:

  1. Commercial, manufactured or kit work, including use of commercial molds, patterns, blanks or dies.
  2. Commercially manufactured art tiles or note cards that are not created from the artist’s original work.
  3. Machine screened patterns, mass production or factory produced wearable goods.
  4. Glass forms of mass production.
  5. Commercial casts, molds, or production work for precious jewelry (silver, gold, platinum, etc. and precious or semi‐precious stones).
  6. Food products, personal care items (soaps, lotions, etc.), assemblies, or items offered for resale are not considered for jurying.

Collaborative Work

Artists often work with other artists in both the creative development and implementation of a single piece of art or body of work. The following membership options are available to these artists:

  1. If each artist wants individual voting privileges, each artist must apply for separate membership.
  2. If the artists are collaborating on a specific work in the same medium, only a single membership is required, with all names listed on the application. However, only one artist will have voting privileges.
  3. If each artist works in different disciplines (e.g., fiber versus glass, sculpture versus painting, etc.), each artist must apply for membership.
  4. If each artist works in the same discipline, but styles, techniques, etc. are distinctly different, each artist must apply for membership.
  5. If the artist uses non‐artists or assistants to help in their work (e.g., framing, set‐up, cleaning, etc.), only a single membership is required, with all names listed on the application. However, only the artist will have voting privileges.

Application for CSA Membership

Membership applications and fees can be submitted online at the CSA website. Applications can also be downloaded from the CSA website. It is only necessary for one application to be completed regardless of the number of mediums being submitted; however, the artist-member will be entitled to only one membership and one vote and will be assessed only one annual membership fee. Membership fees for CSA are $60.00 per artist-member annually for the CSA fiscal year of Jan – Dec and are not prorated. As part of your membership, you may participate in the CSA websites; have voting privileges; and may participate in all CSA sponsored activities (CAST, Old Church Fine Arts Show, Winter Craft Show, ART|CORRALES, etc.) Additional booth and entry fees may apply as each event has specific participation guidelines. Note: CAST is now a juried event.

A State of New Mexico CRS (gross receipts tax) number, a Corrales Business License, your signature waiving all insurance liability responsibilities and certifying that you are the sole proprietor of all rights in and to the artwork is required on the application. In addition, you must submit an email containing a minimum of five (5) jpeg digital images 150 dpi and 1200 pixels on the shortest side) of EACH medium you intend to exhibit. Furthermore, we expect the images will be sharp and clearly show the artwork.

Each image must be labeled using the following format: Last Name, First Name, Artwork Title

Images not meeting these standards will not be accepted. If the artist maintains a website with high quality images of artwork, providing a link to it in the application would be very helpful in the jury process.

It is important that the samples you provide reflect the quality of your current, original work as closely as possible for the jurying review process. Include images of your best work.

The application asks for a description of your process. Be sure to include the important and essential highlights of your creative process on the application.
