Become A Member Artist
Red Tulip Gallery (RTG) began in 2013 as a mission of Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen to bring fine crafts from member artists to discerning customers in Bucks County, PA. RTG is located in the vibrant heart of New Hope, PA - a prime tourist destination for the arts and home to shops, galleries, restaurants, and theatre. We have experienced several years of excellent growth in that location and look forward to continued expansion of our loyal customer base, as well as the opportunity for new people to discover us.
Our branding tagline is "Fine Crafts, Local Artists," so we especially look for qualifying fine craft artists from PA, NJ, and DE who can be actively involved as Full Members in the day-to-day operations and governance of the Gallery cooperative, through staffing and participation in special events. See the Terms and Conditions for Full Members (linked below or in the header) for details.
We have also expanded to offer Guest Artist memberships. These memberships are designed for craft artists who are interested in Red Tulip but need to explore more before joining as a Full Member. It's also ideal for artists who cannot fulfill the staffing requirement for Full Membership. See the Terms and Conditions for Guest Artists (linked below or in the header) for details.
