Our society is a community run by artists, for artists. We boast a vibrant, active and participatory membership of over 500 practising artists and makers. The artists fund the running of the organisation through their annual subscription fees, and a rotating panel of volunteers work hard to source new opportunities for their peers, and to stage our exhibition programme. Through the generosity and creativity of our membership we continue to grow into one of the leading platforms for national and international contemporary fine and applied artists.
We have launched a subscription based crowdfunding campaign with Patreon to give our supporters an opportunity to contribute collectively and on a small scale to the continued growth of our society, and receive little gestures of thanks in return. Think of it as a little VAS piggy bank - throw in as little as 80p each month, or whatever you can spare, and if we can gather enough support all that loose change will soon mount up and become enough to make a difference. Whatever amount you are able to give us, however small, will help us to continue to grow, and to offer more and better opportunities for the creative community in Scotland. Our vast network of artists, makers, exhibitors, award winners, and exhibition visitors young and old will all see the benefit of your contribution. All contributions will be publicly acknowledged and rewarded accordingly!
