WHO CAN JOIN SALCOMBE ART CLUB?
Salcombe Art Club comprises a mix of artists: some professional artists such as those who teach our classes but also many amateurs and some very new to drawing/painting. Everyone is welcome!
Membership of Salcombe Art Cub is not limited to those living in Salcombe. Anyone within striking distance is welcome to apply for membership, but it makes most sense for those who live near enough so as to benefit from the classes in the winter, and – if they intend to become exhibiting members – to fulfil their stewarding obligations during the summer.
Step 1 is to enrol as a Lay Member – that’s the first rung of the ladder! Then Salcombe Art club has three categories of membership.
- Lay members (for a subscription of £12 per annum) may take part in workshops, courses and social activities and generally assist in supporting the club but may not exhibit, nor vote at the AGM.
- Associate members (for a subscription of £17 per annum) may exhibit in the Little Studio section (but not the main gallery) of the Annual Summer Exhibition.
- Full members (for a subscription of £27 per annum) may exhibit their works in the Annual Summer Exhibition when they are required to carry out their share of stewarding duties.
