The Society welcomes membership from anyone with an interest in art. We would especially like to encourage students and young people to join us and help to further the development and appreciation of modern and contemporary art within the Society, alongside the more traditional forms.

Subscriptions are due on 1 January each year. Guests are welcome - there is a fee per visit, though there is a maximum of three visits before an annual subscription becomes due. See below for subscriptions and fee rates.
