You do not have to live in Fort Point to join FPAC! All are welcome.

FPAC offers our artist members numerous and meaningful ways to engage in the arts and cultural life of Fort Point and Metro Boston. We support our members by providing exhibition opportunities throughout the neighborhood; exposure through a highly successful art lending program; promoting their work in the annual Open Studios; creating opportunities and providing financial support for public art projects; and by advocating for affordable live-work space in Fort Point and beyond.

Membership Benefits 

Only $100 a year provides you with access to all membership benefits. Here are just a few reasons to join:

  • Promote yourself. Share your projects, exhibitions, and accomplishments on our website, social media, and E-news (reaching over 5000 readers).
  • Get help with funding through fiscal sponsorship. Using a fiscal sponsorship arrangement offers a way for a cause to attract donors even when it is not yet recognized as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)
  • Show and sell your work at Boston’s original Open Studios, operating since 1980, now with a virtual platform. Members who don’t have a studio in the neighborhood can also participate!
  • Take part in exhibitions at Atlantic Wharf Gallery, The FPAC Art Space, and the public art program. FPAC provides $100 towards the reception, installation, wall graphics and labels, social media advertisement, features exhibitions in announcements and newsletters. Full-time staff is present at the gallery, receptions, and events.
  • Draw an income by leasing your artwork through our Art Lending program (approximately $50,000 per year in stipends paid in recent years) and by participating in pop up shops and art sales.
  • Stay informed on affordable artist housing, grant opportunities, fellowships, and Boston arts and culture news.
  • Plan or curate exhibitions and events with staff help and the FPAC Art Space.
  • Note: FPAC takes a 40% commission on sold work through exhibitions or the Art Lending Program.
  • Take part in a vibrant community of working artists, creatives, and performers.
