It is my understanding that artists whose works are selected for display in the Penn Cove Gallery must be members of that gallery before submission of their work for possible future inclusion.
I am curious to know what the Penn Cove Gallery monthly and/or annual membership fee might be.
Would the works of a poor but talented "starving" artist who could not afford Penn Cove Gallery membership be precluded from consideration?
If so, does not this system inevitably equate talent with economic viability?
And does not such a scheme smack of a brand of blatant elitism that should have no place in our pluralistic society?

It's easy to learn the actual process for participation in the gallery rather than speculate; just ask at the gallery. The gallery fulfills the charter under which it is incorporated. Anyone who wants to put in the work to create a gallery that fits a model he prefers is free to do so.
