"Plus One" Membership Campaign

For the best events and opportunities, being someone’s “Plus One” is always exciting – it’s an invitation to a new experience. Our artist members are always the best way for potential members to find out about the exciting things WPA has to offer working artists. WPA has been proudly serving DC area artists since 1975, and we feel lucky to have such committed and supportive artist members. And now, we want to reward you for your devotion.

Invite a new artist member to sign up for a WPA membership as your “Plus One” between now and June 20, and if they purchase a membership, naming you as their referrer, you’ll get a Utrecht Coupon good for 10% off any purchase. If you refer three new members, your next year of membership in WPA will be free.

Also, the WPA member who refers the most new members during this promotion will receive some other amazing prizes, which will be awarded at a special New Member Reception this summer:

• A $100 gift certificate courtesy of Utrecht Art Supply.
• A $25 gift certificate courtesy of Chinatown Coffee Co.
• More prizes….watch this space for updates!

WPA gets stronger when you share your experience with someone and we grow, one member at a time. Invite your “Plus One” to join WPA today!

Rules and restrictions:
1. A “new member” is defined as anyone who has not held a valid WPA membership at any time since March 1, 2010.
2. To receive credit for the referral, the new member must include the name of the existing member in the referral section of the online membership enrollment form.
3. The referrer must be a valid WPA member at the time that the new member purchases his or her membership.
4. Winners will be determined by WPA based on total number of valid referrals obtained between March 20, 2012 and June 20, 2012.




The 5th edition of WPA’s bi-annual Artist Directory is now available!

WPA’s four-color, fully illustrated 2011-2012 Artist Directory is the definitive guide to established, emerging, and mid-career contemporary artists throughout the Washington region. Used by curators, art advisors, collectors, artists, editors, designers, and people with an interest in the arts, our 408-page Directory is the primary resource for access to art and artists in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia region.

The Directory features each participating WPA member artist on a full 8-1/2 x 5-1/2” page with contact information and a high-quality image selected by the artist as representative of his or her work as well as a listing to area museums and galleries.

The 2011-2012 Artist Directory is available for purchase on our website and at the Corcoran Gallery of Art Gift Shop. All 4 previous volumes are also available for purchase directly from WPA. Please call our office at 202-234-7103 for more information.
