Membership in OAA costs $50 per year (only $25 per year if you are 25 years of age or less), and is open to all artists 16 years of age or older who would like to have their work shown in local venues. A membership application is finalized by the Board of Directors, who review photos of the applicant’s recent work.


  1. Include photographs of at least two (2) of you newer works of art with your application.    

  2. Use PayPal (on this page) to pay $50 dues, OR
    mail with your $50 dues check* to OAA membership chairman:


Ms. Jenifer Kolkhorst,  

156 Crestview Drive,  

Orinda, CA 94563


That’s all there is to it! You will be notified about your application following the next scheduled board meeting!! If you have any problems or concerns please contact:


Jenifer Kolkhorst: 

(925) 254-0451  

*Note: If application is accepted in the 1st half of the year, the dues are for the current calendar year. If membership is accepted in the 2nd half of the year, the payment will cover dues for current year and the following calendar year.


The dues check sent with the application is of course refundable if the application is rejected for any reason.

You can renew your membership or make a contribution to the OAA education fund with your PayPal account or credit card.

It's easy.  You can pay your $50 annual dues ($25 if you are 25 years of age or less) or contribute any amount to the OAA education fund in two convenient ways:

- Click the "Pay Dues" button above to pay dues with your PayPal account or credit card, and enter $50 (or $25 if you are between 16 and 25 years of age, inclusive) if for dues.  If you want to use a credit card rather than PayPal, choose that option.  Don't worry that the button says "Donate" --we will credit your payment correctly --as dues, a purchase, or a donation.



- Mail a check for $50 (or $25) payable to Oakland Art Association to:

Ms. Jenifer Kolkhorst,  

156 Crestview Drive,  

Orinda, CA 94563

Please let us know when you make a PayPal payment for membership dues, a contribution to our education fund (we are a 501(c)23 non-profit),  or any other reason.  Thank you!
