Associate Membership


Our membership year runs from 1st February - 31st January

Associate membership offers the same benefits as ordinary membership and is aimed at art students, artists who have graduated in the last three years and artists under 25 years of age. Its main purpose is to provide a low cost membership for young people who might otherwise be unable to afford the full cost of membership. 

Please note that if you plan to submit work to the Open Exhibition you must join or renew your membership by Weds 1 November. Your membership will be effective immediately but we have to add you manually to the online submission system, and this can take up to five working days.
