Artist Membership is open to any practicing artist in the visual arts.  Applicants are invited to apply each year prior to each Annual General Meeting in late October.

Selection of 2020/2021 applicants will take place prior to the Annual General Meeting due to be held at the end of October 2020. We are currently reviewing the process and procedures for selection and will update this page in due course.

Candidates for membership normally provide 3 artworks that they consider suitable for exhibition and indicative of their current practice. New members pay an initial £15 on application which is non-refundable, and if successful a further £10 will be due. The combined payment will form the artists first year of membership valid till 31st Oct the following year. Thereafter membership renews annually at £25 on or by the 31st Oct.
