OUR MISSION IS TO PRESERVE AND PROMOTE FINE CRAFTS

Individual exhibiting membership in the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi, Inc. is open to anyone anywhere. Out-of-state members may enjoy all Guild privileges with the exception of voting. Group exhibiting membership is available to two or more Mississippi artisans; the Standards Committee decides group exhibiting membership on a case-by-case basis. Leaders are responsible for the quality of the group's work. Benefits of membership include:

  • Invitations to show and sell work at all sanctioned Guild events such as the December Chimneyville Crafts Festival
  • Referrals to other national and international festival organizers
  • Direct referrals to collectors, buyers, designers and wholesalers
  • The privilege to sell and demonstrate work at Guild retail galleries and outposts Direct referrals to feature writers, authors and producers
  • A quarterly newsletter with articles designed especially for the professional artisan
  • Invitations to special members' meetings, workshops and social events

Membership benefits are provided for $75 annual dues. A $30 jury fee is charged when a member's work is reviewed every three years. After nine consecutive years of membership, and the successful completion of four standards reviews, a member becomes a FELLOW with no jury requirements thereafter.

The slides and/or photographs presented with the application will not be returned if applicant is accepted into membership. They will be kept in Guild publicity files.

Examples of work may be submitted in more than one medium (wood, pottery, baskets, glass, etc), but each medium must be accompanied by a separate application, resume, artist's statement, slides and $30 fee.
